Filip Kostic is allegedly now tempted by the idea of joining West Ham United from Eintracht Frankfurt in the summer transfer window.
That’s according to a report from The Evening Standard who claim that after taking time to decide his future, the 29-year-old has come around to the idea of moving to the London Stadium this summer.
West Ham boss David Moyes has been chasing Kostic for the past couple of weeks now.
Sky Sports reported yesterday that the Hammers remain locked in talks to sign the 48-capped Serbia international.
Moyes is clearly very keen to get the signing of a versatile left-sided player over the line before the new Premier League season kicks off.
Kostic is obviously the Scot’s main target but BILD recently claimed that the 29-year-old has no interest in joining the Hammers. That seems to have changed now though…
West Ham given new Filip Kostic hope
The Serbian has seemingly performed a complete U-turn as is now coming around to the idea of joining the Hammers this summer.
The Evening Standard claim that West Ham are still strong contenders for his signature in spite of recent reports to the contrary.
What a signing Filip Kostic would be for West Ham this summer.
talkSPORT recently described Kostic as a ‘brilliant’ player, and they’re not wrong.
The Eintracht Frankfurt ace is an incredibly hard-working player.
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 absolutely love to see Filip Kostic at West Ham.
He’s available for around £15 million this summer (The Sun’s Jack Rosser). And for that fee, the Hammers just need to do whatever it takes to make it happen.
