How Luc Castaignos will improve Eintracht Frankfurt

Cologne – With the 2015/16 Bundesliga season just around the corner, we figured it prime time to take a closer look at some of the German top flight's most talked about summer signings.

Reducing the reliance on Meier

Eintracht Frankfurt made waves on the transfer market when they lured Luc Castaignos to the Hessian metropolis. So what does the forward bring to a side which already boasted the Bundesliga's most prolific player last term in Alexander Meier? bundesliga.com takes a closer look.

Indeed, Meier has almost uninterruptedly been the Eagles' top-scorer since arriving in 2004, and the attacker beat the likes of Robert Lewandowski, Arjen Robben and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to the Torkanone in 2014/15, carrying Frankfurt's goalscoring burden almost single-handedly. That is set to change in 2015/16 now that he has been supplied with an equally prolific partner in Luc Castaignos.
