Juventus are now said to be ready to increase their offer for Filip Kostic, with West Ham still keen on the move.
Carlo Laudisa has reported about the situation of the Serbian, claiming that Kostic is now ‘distracted’ by the interest of Juventus even though West Ham are aiming to close a deal by the weekend after offering €15 million plus bonuses for the player.
Kostic prefers Juventus over West Ham and a key reason for that is the presence of Dusan Vlahovic, who has a good relationship with his compatriot. Juve’s first offer was at €8 million plus bonuses that took the offer to €10 million. But it is very likely that they increase their offer soon in the next few hours.
They are likely to put forward a fee of €12 million next. But as things stand, Eintracht Frankfurt prefer the West Ham move, as the Hammers are offering more money. But Juve are pushing and Federico Cherubini’s meeting with Max Allegri yesterday involved a chat about Kostic as well.
