West Ham United allegedly now face competition from Inter Milan and Juventus for the signing of Filip Kostic this summer.
That’s according to a report from Calciomercato who claim that Inter and Juve are interested in signing the 29-year-old.
Both Italian clubs can offer Filip Kostic Champions League football. So if they do submit official offers for his services, our hopes of securing a deal to sign the Serbian will surely be over.
West Ham manager David Moyes is reportedly desperately keen to bring the Serb to the London Stadium this summer (Frankfurter Rundschau).
There is seemingly a huge problem on the horizon for the Hammers though…
West Ham face a battle for Kostic
According to a report from Calciomercato, the Hammers will now have to fight off competition from Inter Milan and Juventus for the 29-year-old Eintracht Frankfurt star.
That’s obviously very bad news indeed. West Ham already face competition from Chelsea according to BILD.
We would absolutely love to see Kostic at the London Stadium, he’s an incredible player.
The Eintracht Frankfurt ace is very hard-working and always puts in a real shift – something that will obviously appeal to Moyes.
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.
Kostic would be a huge upgrade on any options that Moyes has in the left wing-back department and the beauty of the Serb is that he can play further forward as well, so would add so much versatility to the Hammers squad.
Unfortunately for West Ham though, it seems as though signing Kostic will be a huge challenge this summer.
