Last summer was quite the experience for Filip Kostic. While Kostic thought a move to Lazio was certain, Eintracht had other ideas. Frankfurt management reportedly gave Lazio a fake email address to prevent a €10 million transfer from taking place. Kostic was absolutely furious with the decision, but eventually came to terms and led Frankfurt’s unbelievable run to a Europa League title. But with 1 year remaining on his contract, the possibility of a move is presented once again.

3 clubs have reportedly shown interest in Kostic after yet another impressive campaign, tallying 7 goals and 15 assists in all competitions. Inter Milan and Tottenham are two squads with major needs on the left who are taking a look. But the team that could separate themselves from the pack is Juventus as Dušan Vlahović is an international teammate of Kostic and could be the decisive factor for a move.

Juventus are desperately searching for a left-footed winger who can also track back to help out in defense. Kostic seems like the perfect match. But can Vlahović reel his friend away to aid in what’s looking to be a difficult rebuild? Time will tell but look for Tottenham, who have just agreed for a £150 million capital increase to have a major say in the matter.

Clubs will be forced to put up around €15 million for the Serbian star if they are to bring him on. But a move seems more and more likely as the summer progresses. While Champions League football will be played in ‘Mainhattan’, rumors are still flying for a Kostic departure. And this time around, Frankfurt might use a real email address.
