According to Sky Germany, Eintracht Frankfurt is holding on to Filip Kostic and has reportedly rejected an initial €10 million offer from Lazio for the fullback. The 28-year-old did well for the Bundesliga last season with 21 goals, leading to him being linked with a transfer.
With Filip Kostic overly eager to leave Eintracht Frankfurt this summer, it saw the 28-year-old go on a training strike, which was confirmed by Oliver Glasner last week. The Frankfurt coach is not happy with Kostic’s behaviour, with the fullback reportedly turning off his phone to push a transfer ahead of the August 31 transfer deadline. The Serb does have offers, as reports have indicated that three suitors are interested, although no move has been made so far.
However, as Sky Germany reported that Lazio has rejected their first offer, worth €10 million, for Kostic by Eintracht Frankfurt. The report has further indicated that the Bundesliga side values the fullback more than that, but Lazio believes the two sides can come to an agreement. However, Frankfurt wants clarity on the situation, as the club must sign a replacement if Kostic leaves this summer.
The 28-year-old has been a key part of the roster since his loan from Hamburger SV in 2018, making 129 appearances for the club. Not only that, he has consistently had double-digit assists since his arrival, contributing to 74 goals in all competitions. That includes 17 assists and 4 goals last season, plus 5 goals in 10 Europa League appearances. That’s why Sky Germany has reported that Lazio is excited about the switch.
