Eintracht Frankfurt is interested in Croatian striker Roko Šimić (20), as reported by Bild.
The Bundesliga club is looking for a goalscorer to replace the former club star Randal Kolo Muani (24), the French player who moved to PSG this summer for €95 million.
Eintracht is reportedly willing to pay €15 million for a striker, and Šimić is among those they would like to bring in during the winter transfer window. The Croatian striker has made 17 appearances this season, scoring five goals and providing one assist for RB Salzburg. He impressed in the first round of the Champions League, scoring and assisting in Salzburg's 2-0 victory over Benfica.
A reminder, Šimić is the son of the celebrated Croatian national team player and former member of Dinamo's Board of Directors, Dario Šimić. Roko's contract with Salzburg is valid until the summer of 2025, and Transfermarkt estimates his value at five million euros.
Eintracht is currently in seventh place in the Bundesliga with 17 points. If Šimić, a Croatian U-21 national team player, indeed ended up at the Frankfurt club, he would be playing alongside compatriots Kristijan Jakić and Hrvoje Smolčić.
