The director of Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt has made it clear that the club has no interest in selling Filip Kostic to Inter in January, according to a report in the German print media today.
Speaking during an interview with Bild, Markus Krosche said that Filip Kostic is one of their best players and they cannot lose that quality part way through the season.
“We have no intention of selling our best players in the next market session. Kostic, as well as N’Dicka and Kamada, are valuable to us and will not leave the club in January.
“In the second half of the season we will have to catch up to reach our goals, so we cannot allow ourselves the luxury of losing quality in the squad.”
These comments are at odds with those that were recently made by the CEO of Eintracht Frankfurt, Axel Hellmann, who suggested the club are open to selling players in January as it is part of their business model.
“Our business model also provides for revenues through transfers of a certain level, whether in January or in the market summer window.”
Inter were heavily linked with Filip Kostic during the summer transfer window and now the links between the Serbian and the Nerazzurri have increased even more.
This is mostly down to the fact that Ivan Perisic looks extremely unlikely to extend his contract at the club after it expires this summer.
