West Ham United are allegedly finally moving on from Filip Kostic with David Moyes keen to get deals done before the new season starts.
That’s according to a report from Calciomercato.it who claim that the Hammers have come to an agreement with Kostic to terminate their chase.
West Ham boss David Moyes has been keen to sign the 29-year-old Eintracht Frankfurt ace over the past couple of weeks.
It seems as though a deal will just be too difficult to get done though…
West Ham reach agreement with Filip Kostic
The Hammers have reached a mutual agreement with the Serbia international to terminate their transfer chase.
That’s really bad news in our book.
Kostic would have been a terrific addition to Moyes’s ranks at the London Stadium.
talkSPORT recently described Kostic as a ‘brilliant’ player, and they’re not wrong.
The Eintracht Frankfurt ace is an incredibly hard-working player and he would have suited our system perfectly.
He is old fashioned in the sense that he’s left-footed and plays on the left! As a result, Kostic is much more of a provider than a goalscorer.
The 48-capped Serbia international bagged 15 assists and seven goals in 43 games for Eintracht Frankfurt last season (Transfermarkt). That’s a healthy return by anyone’s standards.
We would have absolutely loved to see Filip Kostic at West Ham.
It seems as though that won’t be happening now though. And the only thing that would make that ok is if Moyes brings Maxwel Cornet to the London Stadium.
