Lazio May Divert Attention to Wolfsburg’s Brekalo as Kostic Deal Is Complicated

By Apollo Heyes -

Lazio may divert their attention to VfL Wolfsburg’s Josip Brekalo after talks with Eintracht Frankfurt for Filip Kostic hit a snag.

As reported by Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the Biancocelesti have been targeting the Serbian winger for some time now, but things are complicated as the German club are asking for a permanent deal which would cost around €25 million.

Lazio have been hoping to sign Filip Kostic on a loan deal with a buy option attached, and so now may choose to divert their attention to Wolfsburg winger Josip Brekalo instead.

The 23-year-old Croatian winger can be signed on a loan deal with an option to buy clause, a much more accessible formula than a permanent deal.
