Eintracht Frankfurt have already lost one of their budding young forwards this summer, and could lose another soon with Sébastien Haller linked to Manchester United. The French striker has been making waves since his arrival in the Bundesliga, and is now a highly touted transfer prospect in Europe.

In his two seasons at Frankfurt, Haller has scored 33 goals and provided 19 assists in all competitions, and featured on the 2017/18 DFB Pokal winning team that shocked serial German champions Bayern Munich in the final.

Haller isn’t just a crash in the box striker, but has a very noticeable swagger to his game. Almost reminiscent of the great Zlatan Ibrahimović, Haller’s style of play features an expanding arsenal of moves that make him an ideal strike partner. He doesn’t shy away from attempting the spectacular, including volleyed shots and passes, backheels, and acrobatic goals.

Haller may not have achieved quite the same goalscoring reputation as his former teammate, Luka Jović, but his creativity and confidence makes him an equally dangerous forward threat.

It is yet to be seen if there is any truth to United’s alleged interest in Haller, he could become a fantastic strike partner for any of the forwards currently at Old Trafford.
