Lazio Close to Agreeing Loan Deal With Eintracht Frankfurt for Filip Kostic

Lazio are close to agreeing to a loan deal with Eintracht Frankfurt for winger Filip Kostic.

As reported by Italian newspaper Il Messaggero (via LazioNews24) earlier today, talks between the two clubs are going very well and the Biancocelesti are confident that they can close out a deal soon, on the basis of a loan with an obligation to buy clause attached.

Talks between Lazio and Eintracht Frankfurt are in the final stages now and things could be fully finalised soon, depending on the sale of Argentinian winger Joaquin Correa.

The Biancocelesti cannot officially register any new signings yet due to issues with their liquidity index, but the sale of Correa would unblock the situation, allowing them to officially sign Kostic.
