After Juventus and Eintracht Frankfurt agreed on a deal for the sale of Filip Kostic, Massimiliano Allegri will soon have a new winger on his roster. To undergo his physical with his new club, the Serbian player will travel to Turin on Tuesday. There is a complete agreement in place for a fee of about €16 million, add-ons included, following the beginning of negotiations over the past few weeks. As he is finalizing his transfer to the Italian club, Kostic was not selected by coach Oliver Glasner for the UEFA Super Cup match against Real Madrid that will take place this Wednesday (watch the Super Cup live on Paramount+ and CBS Sports Network).

Kostic has been very close to moving to Serie A on numerous occasions over the years, particularly when Inter Milan was interested in signing him last summer, but negotiations have always broken down before they reached their conclusion. The 29-year-old winger, who can play as a winger in both a 4-3-3 and a 4-4-2, is a player who can provide Massimiliano Allegri’s tactical scheme some flexibility. He participated in 171 games with Eintracht Frankfurt, where he played and scored 33 goals while also contributing 64 assists to his teammates. He is anticipated to play a significant role at Juventus, particularly until Federico Chiesa returns, the star of the team still recovering from an ACL injury. Following the completion of the transfer for Brazilian center-back Gleison Bremer from Torino last month, Juventus is likely to make another significant acquisition after signing free agents Paul Pogba and Angel Di Maria. Following the summer transactions, Juventus is now assuredly going to challenge AC Milan and Inter Milan for the championship.
