15-goals Bundesliga striker responds recent transfer links to Man United

Eintracht Frankfurt striker Sebastien Haller has insisted he is happy at the German club but remained coy about speculation linking him with Manchester United and West Ham.

The Frenchman had an impressive season with the German side, scoring 15 goals in the Bundesliga and five more in the Europa League as Frankfurt made it to the semi-finals.

The 25-year-old formed an excellent partnership with Luka Jovic, who has moved to Real Madrid this summer for around £54m.

Known as the ‘Bulldozer’ for his strength and hold-up play, the forward has been identified as a possible replacement if Romelu Lukaku leaves Manchester United and for Marko Arnautovic as he leaves West Ham for the Chinese Super League.

Haller is well aware of the speculation and kept his answer predictably vague when asked about whether he would be leaving Frankfurt this summer.

‘I’ve heard many things about my future, but nothing new happened,’ Haller told Kicker. ‘I’m here and happy. That cannot mean anything and everything and I have said before that life is about opportunities.

‘Even if there was an offer, only the club and I would know.’

The French forward had been a regular on the score sheet for FC Utrecht from 2014-17, scoring 51 goals in 98 appearances for the Dutch side, before moving to Frankfurt for around £7m.

Any side looking to tempt him away from the Commerzbank-Arena would have to pay an awful lot more than that fee this year, with Frankfurt likely to be asking for closer to £40m.
