Japan Asian Players in Europe

Bundesliga’s Frankfurt make offer for rising star Daichi Kamada

Germany’s Eintracht Frankfurt have made an official offer for Sagan Tosu midfielder Daichi Kamada, Football Tribe has learned.

With the two clubs close to an agreement, the 20-year-old could become the latest Japanese player to voyage to the Bundesliga, which has earned a reputation as a testing ground for national team hopefuls.

Kamada impressed in his second season last year, scoring seven goals from 28 appearances and earning a call-up to the Japan U-23 squad which participated in the Toulon Tournament.

Should the transfer be finalised, he will join Samurai Blue veteran Makoto Hasebe at Frankfurt, who finished 11th in the 2016-2017 Bundesliga season.

Several other Japanese stars have called Commerzbank-Arena home, including Junichi Inamoto, Naohiro Takahara, and Takashi Inui.
