As reported by Italian media outlet TuttoMercatoWeb.com earlier today, the Biancocelesti are still searching for a new winger for coach Maurizio Sarri’s 4-3-3 system and have resumed talks with the Bundesliga side for the 28-year-old Serbian winger.
The Roman club have been following Kostic for some time now and they are feeling confident after the recent talks, believing it to be possible to reach a deal on the basis of a loan with a buy option attached.
Intercity rivals Roma are also keen on signing the 28-year-old Kostic (via Alfredo Pedulla) but need to make a sale first after signing Eldor Shomurodov.
The 28-year-old Kostic, who is contracted to Eintracht Frankfurt until 2023, made 30 Bundesliga appearances last season, for a total of 2536 minutes. In that time, he scored four goals and provided 14 assists in that time.
