Fiorentina striker Khouma Babacar is nearing a summer switch to Bundesliga outfit Eintracht Frankfurt, reports Tuttosport.
The 21-year-old returned to Artemio Franchi following a loan spell with Modena, but chances are he will be leaving again this summer.
According to Tuttosport, Eintracht Frankfurt are hot on the trail of the talented forward and they are stepping up their efforts to recruit him.
The same source has suggested the Bundesliga side are close to agreeing a season-long loan for the Senegalese that would include a buy-out clause as well.
Khouma Babacar has shown a great deal of potential since joining Viola from Pescara back in 2009, but he could only make 23 league appearances for the club.
After somewhat disappointing loan spells at Racing Santander and Padova, the youngster exploded last season while on loan at Modena, bagging 20 goals in 41 Serie B matches, catching the eye of some quality sides in the process.
