Lazio are incredibly keen to sign Eintracht Frankfurt winger Filip Kostic but his non-EU status poses a real problem.
As reported by Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the 28-year-old Serbian winger does not hold an EU passport and so would occupy one of the two non-EU slots in the Lazio squad, which are both currently filled by Felipe Anderson and Dimitrije Kamenovic.
First, the Biancocelesti need to solve the issue of the liquidity index, which requires them to sell a player or two, and they’d also need to send away Kamenovic on loan, as Felipe Anderson will be a core part of Maurizio Sarri’s squad.
The 28-year-old Kostic made 30 Bundesliga appearances last season, for a total of 2534 minutes. In that time, he scored four goals and provided 14 assists.
