Greek media reports that Eintracht Frankfurt and AEK Athens are in talks over a loan deal for Switzerland player Steven Zuber.
In a since-deleted tweet, Greek website and AEK news source enswi.gr suggest that talks are progressing between Greek side AEK Athens and Frankfurt over a season-long loan deal.

According to the website, Zuber is interested in a move to Greece, but the only stumbling block in the way is the wages.
Zuber's current contract at Eintracht Frankfurt earns him €1.2m per year, and AEK are only willing to pay €900,000 rising to €1m as a loan offer. Eintracht also want a purchase option included in the deal and a value of €3m has been given in the report, however, it is reported that AEK would like to lower that purchase option. No mention of a price in the report but it is what AEK desires if a permanent move materializes.
