Eintracht make double signing
DFB Cup winners Eintracht Frankfurt have signed Spanish midfielder Lucas Torró and French defender Obite Evan N'Dicka.
Lucas Torró joins Frankfurt from Real Madrid. The 23-year-old defensive midfielder played for Osasuna in LaLiga2 last season, posting one goal and five assists in 37 appearances, before returning to the UEFA Champions League winners.
"Lucas is a classic defensive midfielder and has had a very good education," said board member Fredi Bobic. "He'd been at Real Madrid since U19 level and has also gained senior experience with Real Madrid Castilla and Real Oviedo."
The Spaniard has put pen to paper on a five-year contract until 2023 and will wear the number 16 shirt.
Centre-back Obite Evan N'Dicka arrives at Eintracht from French side Auxerre, where he made 12 Ligue 2 appearances last season. "Evan is only 18 but is very mature for his age," said Bobic of the France U20 international. "He's technically good, very fast and strong in the air. Auxerre are renowned for their youth development, so we're getting a player who's been well schooled tactically."
The left-footed defender has represented his country at all youth levels from U16 and has also penned a five-year deal at Eintracht. N'Dicka has been handed the number 2 shirt.
