Thanks to his threat in front of goal and versatility, Jesper Lindström is not just a perfect fit for Eintracht’s philosophy but also suits the plans of board member Markus Krösche and new head coach Oliver Glasner. The 21-year-old signed a five-year contract with the Eagles through to June 2026 – proof of both parties’ long-term commitment to one another.
Lindström is a product of Danish club Bröndby IF’s youth academy. After making his top-flight debut in July 2019, the talented midfielder established himself properly during the 2020/21 campaign, making 22 league appearances as well as seven outings in the Superliga championship round. He was named in the starting line-up in all but one of those games and registered 10 goals and 11 assists overall, playing a major role in Bröndby’s first title since 2005.
A number 10 by trade, Lindström is able to play in several positions across the front line, operating as a second striker, deep-lying forward and left winger during his time at Bröndby. “In general I like to play up front but can also play on the wings,” he said. “I’ve got a strong shot on me from distance and I like to link up play in the penalty area.”
Lindström registered 15 goals and as many assists in 65 competitive games for the current Danish champions in all competitions. He has also made three appearances for Denmark’s U19 team as well as a further eight for the U21s.
