Report: Eintracht already has doubts about Alario

Lucas Alario was intended as emergency aid at Eintracht Frankfurt, but his first few months in the Main metropolis were disappointing. Apparently, the hopes of those responsible are sinking.

Because he was only the second choice behind Patrik Schick at Bayer Leverkusen, Lucas Alario was looking for a new challenge in the summer. He found this at Eintracht, who put six million euros on the table for the Argentine - making him the second most expensive summer transfer from Hessen after Jens Petter Hauge (after a loan for ten million euros).

However, he has not yet been able to fulfill the hopes that SGE had placed in the Argentine. Randal Kolo Muani has established himself as the undisputed starter, with Rafael Borré now the first option to come on as a substitute. Alario only has the unsatisfactory role as striker number three - he has only played just over 300 minutes in all competitions (!) in the Eintracht jersey. Disappointing.

The attacker is not only doomed by the strong competition in the person of Kolo Muani and Borré, but also by Oliver Glasner's system. Because while Alario has already emphasized that he feels most comfortable in a two-man storm, the SBU coach consistently relies on a center forward - and two playmakers behind him.

Given his current role in Frankfurt, Alario's World Cup hopes may have been dashed. According to Sport1, "the hope is also sinking internally" that the ex-Leverkusener will make a breakthrough at Eintracht - so Alario should already be thinking intensively about how things will continue for him during the winter break, just six months after his arrival should. In Frankfurt his contract is still dated until 2025.
