Daichi Kamada will leave Eintracht Frankfurt when his contract expires at the end of the season, but a move to Borussia Dortmund is becoming increasingly unlikely.

Borussia Dortmund have been heavily linked with a move for Daichi Kamada in recent weeks, and it was even reported in February that the Japanese international has a verbal agreement on a five year contract with the BVB bosses. But multiple reports in Germany are now claiming that Kamada is increasingly unlikely to join the Black and Yellows on a free transfer in the summer.

Eintracht Frankfurt announced on Wednesday that Kamada has decided against renewing his contract and will be leaving the club when his current contract expires in the summer. The 26 year old, who joined the Eagles from Sagan Tosu in 2017, rejected the club’s offer of a contract extension.

Kamada has established himself as one of the top attacking midfielders in the Bundesliga with his performances this season, and there will be no shortage of clubs interested in his signature.

Borussia Dortmund, Liverpool, FC Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, and Tottenham Hotspur have all been linked with a move for Kamada in recent months. With BVB apparently no longer in the race for his signature, a transfer abroad seems to be the likeliest option.

Daichi Kamada helped Eintracht Frankfurt win the UEFA Europa League last season, and was also part of their DFB-Pokal winning squad in 2018. He has 13 goals and five assists to his name in 38 appearances for Oliver Glasner’s side so far this season.
