Juventus Dangle Kostic, Eye Youngsters to Succeed Him

Juventus are plotting to revamp their left wing and are open to selling Filip Kostic, who hasn’t been as pivotal and prolific as in the past this season. The Serb is drawing interest in particular from Olympique Marseille, TuttoSport informs.

His agent arranged the transfer of Joaquin Correa last summer and has stayed in touch with Les Phocéens. The Bianconeri spent €14M to acquire the veteran from Eintracht Frankfurt two years ago. They are looking for a comparable sum, or a little less, to sell him. More Ligue 1 sides might chase after him.

Juventus are tracking some youngsters to replace Kostic. In addition to Lecce’s Patrick Dorgu, who’s also on Milan’s radar, they have taken an interest in Mario Mitaj. Their scouts won’t need to go far to watch him play during the break, as Albania will face Chile in Parma.

He debuted with the national team when he was only 17. He moved to Lokomotiv Moscow from AEK Athens for €3M in 2022, amassing 37 appearances in Russia. His valuation is around €5/6M.

Our Take on Juventus and Kostic

Andrea Cambiaso has been faring well on the right but is destined to take over that flank once Timothy Weah breaks through or somebody else joins. The Serb isn’t overly expensive in terms of wages, €3M, so he might stay even with a reduced role. They can take a swing on a youngster should they need a substitute, but which scheme they’ll use will be seminal in such a decision.
