Eintracht star Filip Kostic from Frankfurt wanted to go on strike in the direction of AS Roma last summer. With Hessen’s participation in the Champions League, the cards are being reshuffled. But now a club from Italy is involved again. Juventus files claims.

Juve wants Kostic: Because the Italian Champions League participant Juventus Turin is hot for Eintracht Frankfurt’s midfield star Filip Kostic (29). This is reported by the “Gazzetta dello Sport” on Saturday. The winger should be the first choice in the plans of the Serie A giants.

Branch vacant: Juventus are under pressure to play on the wing because Tottenham Hotspur probably secured the services of Inter Milan’s Ivan Perisic, who was willing to emigrate, in a direct duel. Since Kostic only has a contract in Frankfurt until 2023, the Serb could be available for around 15 million, writes “Spox”.

Eintracht optimistic: With the 50 million euros in revenue from the Europa League triumph, Eintracht could even afford a Filip Kostic next season, although he would then be free in 2023. Coach Oliver Glasner doesn’t sound hopeless: “I don’t think it was his last game for us,” said the Austrian after the Europa League win against Glasgow Rangers.
