Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt have reportedly identified Norwich City boss Daniel Farke as a summer target.

According to claims from German news outlet Sport1, the Canaries chief is one of many names to have been weighed up by the top brass at Frankfurt as they aim to replace Niko Kovac.

The Croatian boss has secured a move to Bayern Munich ahead of next season and will no longer be in charge of Frankfurt, which has led them to consider a number of different managerial candidates.

Farke has overseen a generally indifferent season at Carrow Road. Norwich have finished the campaign in 14th place on the Championship table, with sections of the fanbase somewhat disillusioned by the German’s playing style.

Fredi Bobic, Frankfurt’s sporting director, admitted that appointing Farke is an option that the club are considering exploring.

The 46-year-old is currently contracted to Norwich until 2019 and has often spoken of his happiness to be at the club. However, a return to his homeland and a move to the Bundesliga could prove to be an attractive proposition ahead of next season.
