According to reports from Portuguese outlet A Bola, Eintracht Frankfurt have set a £4.3 million asking price for alleged Newcastle United and Southampton target Luc Castaignos.

Castaignos endured a difficult time following his move to Eintracht Frankfurt last season and it is widely thought that the German side are looking to get rid of the attacker this summer.

The report adds that Portuguese giants Sporting Lisbon are also interested in signing the Dutchman and have already placed an offer on the table for Frankfurt to consider.

Both Newcastle and Southampton have the financial capability to match Frankfurt’s asking price for Castaignos but they will have to move quickly due to Sporting’s concrete bid.
