Oscar Hojlund has completed a transfer to Eintracht Frankfurt, according to Fabrizio Romano and German media.

The Hojlunds are a footballing family. The eldest of the three brothers, Rasmus Hojlund, of course, plays his football at Manchester United, having joined the Red Devils for a whopping €74 million last year.

Before his move, the 21-year-old briefly plied his trade at Atalanta, Sturm Graz and FC Copenhagen in his native Denmark. There, he lined up alongside his two brothers Oscar and Emil, who are twins.

Unlike Rasmus, the 19-year-olds remained in the Danish capital, but this summer they are also finally set to spread their wings and follow their brother to a top-five league.

However, the two will not join Rasmus in the Premier League.

Hojlund twins Bundesliga-bound

Instead, they are set to move to the Bundesliga - or at least Oscar is. According to Fabrizio Romano and Sky Germany, the midfielder, who had a short cameo against Man Utd in the Champions League last term, has completed a transfer to Eintracht Frankfurt, joining for a trifling €1.4 million amid interest from Italy and Spain.

However, it seems that he won't be separated from Emil for long. His twin, who plays primarily further forward as an attacker, has also been linked with a move to the German top flight.

VfB Stuttgart are reportedly considering him as a potential replacement for Borussia Dortmund-bound star striker Serhou Guirassy, though this deal is nowhere near as advanced yet as his brother's.

Either way, both will be hoping their next club can serve as a springboard for bigger and better things. Perhaps they will one day suit up alongside - or against - brother Rasmus in the Premier League.
