Former Chelsea and West Bromwich Albion boss Roberto di Matteo is in talks with Eintracht Frankfurt.

The Daily Mail says Di Matteo looks set to become the new coach of Bundesliga club Eintracht Frankfurt.

For several weeks now, it has been an open secret that Di Matteo is the top candidate to take over from Armin Veh, who will join Stuttgart in the summer.

Frankfurt's director of sport Bruno Hubner is confident that he will get his No 1 target.

"The picture is becoming clearer," he said, "(Di Matteo) is interested in Eintracht Frankfurt. He has already turned down five other offers on the phone."
