Frankfurt Ace Strikes Verbal Agreement with Juventus

Despite signing Angel Di Maria and Paul Pogba, Juventus are not done with the summer market, and Long-linked Serie A target Filip Kostic is close to joining, as per latest reports from La Gazzetta dello Sport. The Serbian winger was trailed in the past by Inter, Roma and Lazio. But now a move to Turin seems more likely since he is attracted to the black and white jersey.

A transfer fee of €12M plus €3M in bonuses and add-ons is in the picture, as Juventus look to make him their fifth permanent signing of the season. However, Eintracht Frankfurt reportedly want nothing short of €20M. The Europa League winners are well aware of the player’s choice of Turin and decision to leave.

As per Tuttosport (via Tuttomercatoweb). Kostic has already come to terms with Juventus on his contract, which would see him earn €3.5M per season including bonuses. It was reported that West Ham were in pole position for a deal with the West Germans, but the player’s preference makes it difficult for the English side to execute it. It is understood that the 29-year-old always wants to move to Italy to progress in his career.

The only aspect left to be considered between Juventus and Frankfurt is an agreement in principle. Talks are expected to be held over the coming days. There is anticipation that the deal will be closed by the start of next week.

The stylish winger proved to be instrumental in Frankfurt’s continental triumph last season, as they usurped Barcelona, West Ham, and Rangers en route to their Europa League victory. Kostic has 33 goals in 171 appearances for Die Adler.

Our Take on Kostic to Juventus

An exciting player on the wings, Kostic has all the capability to pair up with fellow winger Angel Di Maria and instill fear into opposing defenses. His attacking prowess will undoubtedly add to Max Allegri’s strengths.
