A new destination for the Egyptian national team star Marmoush
Eintracht Frankfurt, eighth Bundesliga, announced on Monday its contract with Egyptian international striker Omar Marmoush until 2027.
The 24-year-old will move to the Eagles on a free transfer at the end of his contract with Wolves in June after the end of his contract with Wolves.
Frankfurt sporting director Markus Kruisch said in a statement: "Omar has already proven his abilities in the Bundesliga and at the same time he still has great potential for development and improvement."
Born in Cairo and a dual Egyptian and Canadian national, Marmoush earned 17 caps, scoring four goals.
Marmoush, who usually plays as a winger, began his football career with Wadi Degla in the 2016-2017 season before moving to Wolfsburg but failed to establish himself as a starter in the starting line-up and played for the reserve team.
Wolfsburg loaned him twice, the first to St Pauli in 2021, and the second to Stuttgart in the 2021-2022 season, and his brilliance with the latter has seen him return to Wolfsburg and started in the squad this season where he scored five goals in 31 league games.
He was nominated for the league's Player of the Year award in March, and several clubs have expressed interest in signing him. Wolfsburg tried to renew his contract, but failed to reach an agreement according to sporting director Sebastian Schendtillorts, and the club officially announced his departure on April 11.
At the time, Schendtillurtz told Wolfsburg's official website: "The two sides exchanged their ideas in open and honest negotiations. No agreement can be reached during these talks."
"We would like to thank him for his commitment to the Wolfsburg shirt and wish Omar all the best in his future career."
Marmouche commented on his departure: "I had a great time with Wolfsburg and I would like to thank the officials for giving me the opportunity to continue to develop by loaning me twice."
"For me, now is the time to take another step. I will do my best until the end of the season to achieve our goals with the team".
Marmoush was hoping to work again under coach Oliver Glasner, who gave him his Bundesliga debut during their time together at Wolfsburg.
But Glasner, who currently oversees Frankfurt, will leave at the end of the season due to disappointing results, having won just one of his last 10 league games.
Glassner was the architect of Eintracht Frankfurt's Europa League title last season when he beat Scottish Rangers on penalties.
This coronation contributed to Frankfurt's participation in the Champions League this season for the first time in its history and reached the final eight before losing to Napoli.
Frankfurt has the chance to save his season when he plays the final of the domestic cup competition against Leipzig to carry the title on the third of next June.
