Juventus Could Decide to Offload Underperforming Kostic

Despite their lack of resources, Juventus might not be done making moves in January. They need some to sell to foot possible additions. Filip Kostic hasn’t had a great season and is drawing interest from Saudi Arabia, La Gazzetta dello Sport informs.

The Bianconeri would think about it if they got a concrete offer. He’d join his compatriots Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Aleksandar Mitrovic. They are both starring for Al Hilal. They’d have to find a suitable replacement afterward. They have been insistently linked to Federico Bernardeschi.

Kostic was already tipped to depart Juventus in the summer. He didn’t play in the first two games because of the situation. He reclaimed his starting job after the end of the window. The wingback has tallied 4 assists in 18 appearances.

On the other hand, he has been subbed off early in two of the last three games due to underwhelming performances. The Old Lady has two youngsters waiting in the wings in the role, Andrea Cambiaso and Samuel Iling-Junior.

Our Take on Juventus and Kostic

The rumors about him resurface every time he has a couple of bad games in a row. The Bianconeri only seem interested in modifying the squad around the fringes in the winter. Given his age and since he’s not a difference-maker, they should seriously consider offers close to what they spent for him, €14M. Bernardeschi isn’t a suitable replacement. They would be able to pick which flank to bolster afterward thanks to Cambiaso’s versatility.
