Kostic can play as both a winger or as a wide midfielder and so would be perfect for Maurizio Sarri’s 4-3-3 system. The Roman club’s priority this summer is signing wingers and Kostic is one of their top options.

Eintracht Frankfurt have already identified their replacement for Kostic, 24-year-old Werder Bremen winger Milot Rashica.
