Juventus pushing for Kostic


JJuventus are back in for Serbian winger Filip Kostic and will decide whether or not to make an offer very soon. The Bianconeri have been linked with the 29-year-old for much of the summer but have failed to make a decisive move, allowing Premier League side West Ham to express their interest.

Goal Italia’s Romeo Agresti reports that the recent injury to Paul Pogba will force the Old Lady to rethink their tactical plans for the new season. Coach Max Allegri was expected to play a 4-3-3 formation, but could opt for a ‘hybrid’ 4-4-2, which would be well-suited to Kostic playing on the left-flank.

Agresti writes that Juve are now analysing the player’s profile once again and will decide whether to make a final offer very soon.

La Gazzetta dello Sport go one step further, suggesting Juve are now pushing for the player and have already made a €10m offer to Eintracht Frankfurt, while the German side want closer to €12m.
