Transfermarkt’s Manuel Veth, supported by information from the MLSSoccer.com, reports that Eintracht Frankfurt may soon sign 19-year-old attacking talent Paxten Aaronson. The younger brother of USMNT international Brenden Aaronson (who also played for Philadelphia before moving to RB Salzburg and later Leeds United) has been linked with a move to Europe for some time. 
Paxten has scored four goals for his MLS side over the last two seasons. In the most recent campaign, he made 24 appearances and registered one tally for the current MLS Cup finalists. According to transfermarkt, Eintracht feel as if the teenager could be an excellent potential replacement for Daichi Kamada should the Japanese international depart after the season. 

The MLSSoccer.com portal reports that a transfer fee of €4 million plus bonuses is currently being negotiated. Philadelphia’s German sporting director Ernst Tanner is said to be in close contact with SGE manager Markus Krösche. The pair both have previous links to the RB system and continue to maintain contact when it comes to footballing business matters. 

Paxten, three years younger than his 24-times-capped older brother, has thus far only represented the United States at youth level. The 19-year-old netted eight tallies in 13 appearances for the U.S. U20 side. The Aaronson brothers hail from Bedford, New Jersey and are both considered to be major long-term prospects by the USSF.
