Japan attacker Daichi Kamada is set to move from German Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt to AC Milan in Italy's Serie A, a source with knowledge of the matter said Sunday.

Eintracht, who finished the latest Bundesliga campaign in seventh place, revealed last month that the 26-year-old had chosen not to renew his contract.

Kamada joined Frankfurt from the J-League's Sagan Tosu in 2017 and helped them win the 2021-2022 Europa League title.

The Ehime Prefecture native played in all four of Japan's games at last year's World Cup in Qatar.

Kamada is believed to have already agreed to terms with AC Milan. In joining the 19-time Italian league champions, he follows in the footsteps of former Japan playmaker Keisuke Honda, who spent two-and-a-half seasons at the San Siro.
