Eintracht Frankfurt’s Inter-linked Filip Kostic has changed representatives, in a move being viewed as the first steps towards a €10 million switch to the Nerazzurri.
As reported in today’s newspaper edition of Tuttosport, the winger has become the latest player to sign up to Alessandro Lucci’s World Soccer Agency and it is suggested that this is an indication of his desire to move to Serie A and sign for Inter.
The newspaper also reports that current Nerazzurri wing-back Ivan Perisic has made clear his intentions to leave at the end of his contract, expiring next summer, Kostic is viewed as an ideal replacement.
Inter had been in talks to sign the Serbia international in the most recent transfer window and directors Beppe Marotta and Piero Ausilio are ready to reignite negotiations. It is thought that Frankfurt would accept €10m for him, whereas in the summer they were pushing for an additional €3m in bonuses.
Meanwhile, Kostic himself is thought to be ready to agree to a €2.5m per year contract, with an additional €1m in bonuses, and this is in line with Inter’s budget.
