Jesper Lindström leaves Eintracht Frankfurt after two years and joins SSC Napoli. The Hessians are rewarded for the sporting loss accordingly.
Jesper Lindstrom is no longer a player for Eintracht Frankfurt. What had already become apparent in the past few days is now official. The Dane, who came to Eintracht in the summer of 2021, is moving to SSC Napoli. The Hessians announced this on Tuesday evening.
“Winning the title in the Europa League, reaching the DFB Cup final and last but not least many special moments in the Bundesliga will always be associated with Eintracht and vice versa,” said Eintracht sports director Markus Krösche. “Jesper’s time in Frankfurt was also marked by strong individual development, which is also a good example of how we as a club are able to take highly talented players to the next level.”
Lindstrom thanks Eintracht
Lindström says goodbye to Instagram in the evening with an emotional statement. Although he was only with Hessen for two years, the club, the city and the fans would always have a special place in his heart, he wrote. “I felt welcome in the city, in the dressing room and on the pitch from day one.” The best moment was of course winning the Europa League. “What a journey,” said Lindstrom. “We made history together.”
According to information from hr-sport, the end of this story brings the Hessians a transfer fee of around 30 million euros.
Brondy earns with
However, the Hessians have to forward part of it directly to Denmark. According to information from the local EkstraBladet, Lindström’s ex-club Brondby has secured a resale participation for Lindström.
Eintracht paid seven million euros for the fast attacker in 2021. According to a report from last year, Brondby should receive 15 percent of every euro more that the Hessians earn from a further purchase. Almost 3.5 million euros (15 percent of 23 million euros) flow into a Danish account.
Lindstrom has developed well
Lindström can look back on two successful years in Frankfurt. The fast attacker was considered a dead chance in his debut season, but still scored five goals and just as many assists in the Bundesliga.
The Dane took another step forward in his development last season and scored seven Bundesliga goals for Eintracht in the first half of the season alone. “I worked on it with our assistant coach,” said Lindström last winter about his newfound calm at the end of the season. After an ankle injury, he was no longer able to build on his strong previous performances in the second half of the season.
