Juventus want to sign Filip Kostic soon and want to make sure that he plays in the Serie A opener against Sassuolo.
While it has been told to Get Italian Football News that West Ham are close to giving up on the chase for Kostic, the Bianconeri are reviewing their finances before making an offer for the player.
Giovanni Albanese has now reported that Massimiliano Allegri wants Kostic to make his debut on the 15th of August against Sassuolo in Juve’s opening game of the Serie A season. The club believe that due to Moise Kean’s injury and Federico Bernardeschi’s exit, Juve do not have enough options on the left wing and Kostic is seen as that important option.
While time is running out, Juve are set to make an offer for the player soon and Eintracht Frankfurt want the offer to be of €12 million plus bonuses of €3 million, since West Ham’s offer stands at €15 million right now. An offer like that will make sure that Juve will be able to close the deal for the Serbian by this weekend.
