Lazio want to sign Eintracht Frankfurt winger Filip Kostic, who has also been approached by Simone Inzaghi’s Inter.
As reported by Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla earlier today, the Biancocelesti are looking to sign a strong winger this summer that fits in new coach Maurizio Sarri’s tactical system, with the 28-year-old Serbian being underlined as a good fit.
Kostic, whose contract expires with the Bundesliga outfit in 2023, is valued at around €25-30 million, a significant fee, but not an impossible one for Lazio. The Roman club may decide to sell Argentine forward Joaquin Correa in order to fund the deal.
The Biancocelesti want at least €30 million for the 26-year-old Correa, who would struggle to play his best in Sarri’s 4-3-3 system, hence the club’s focus on Kostic. Lazio may meet with representatives from Eintracht Frankfurt before the weekend to discuss the deal.
The 28-year-old Kostic scored four goals and provided 17 assists in 30 Bundesliga games this season.
