Inter are considering a move for Eintracht Frankfurt midfielder Filip Kostic as they seek a replacement for Ivan Perisic, according to Tuttosport.

Antonio Conte wanted to convert Perisic into a wing-back so he could play on the left-hand side of his 3-5-2 system.

The Croatian has failed to convince his new boss during Inter’s first three weeks of preseason, though, forcing the club’s management to look for alternatives.

Kostic scored six goals and created 11 assists for Eintracht last year as they reached the semifinals of the Europa League, beating Inter in the last 16.

Conte needs another player to back up Kwadwo Asamoah, who is still on holiday after playing for Ghana in the Africa Cup of Nations, and Dalbert.

Aleksandar Kolarov would have been signed from Roma to play at centre-back and is considered to old to sustain a full year at wing-back, while Chelsea’s transfer ban makes it difficult to sign Emerson Palmieri.

Matteo Darmian is a third alternative to Kostic on the left, but Inter do not seem to be considering the Manchester United outcast at present.

Conte signed Palmieri from Roma while in charge of Chelsea but Inter would need to make a very convincing offer to sign the Italian-Brazilian.

Kostic could be the best option for the club, then, although it is unclear how much money Eintracht would want for the 26-year-old.
