“Marmoush has been suffering from problems with the hand in question for some time, so surgery is unavoidable,” the Bundesliga club said in a statement earlier on Monday.

Both the club and the player’s agent didn’t reveal for how long the player will remain on the sidelines, but Egypt's media reports suggest he needs from six to eight weeks to complete his rehabilitation programme.

Last week, Egypt coach Hossam Hassan said the Pharaohs player won’t be available for World Cup qualifiers against Burkina Faso and Guinea-Bissau next June due to injury.

“Marmoush has a problem with his finger. The player and his team decided that he should undergo the operation after the end of the season in Germany,” Hassan told reporters.

The 25-year-old forward is a key player in Egypt's attacking trio alongside Mohamed Salah and Nantes striker Mostafa Mohamed.

The former-Wadi Degla forward Marmoush enjoyed his best-ever performance with Bundesliga club Eintracht Frankfurt, having scored 17 goals and provided six assists in 41 games across all competitions last season.
