Filip Kostić intends to stay at Eintracht Frankfurt following latest contract offer

Filip Kostić has a strong tendency to now remain at Eintracht Frankfurt despite recently reaching an agreement in principle to join Juventus, according to Sport1.

SGE have reportedly offered Kostić a €5m salary, an increase from his previous €3.8m per year. The 29-year-old is expected to sign a three-year extension, tying him at the club until 2026. The final details still need to be clarified, but it’s now likely that Kostić will remain at Eintracht Frankfurt.

The Serbian’s new salary would see him on par with Kevin Trapp. Italian side AS Roma also made an attempt to sign Kostić but this was blocked by his representatives. Juventus had also agreed a three-year contract but instead decided to pursue Ángel Di María with the Bianconeri not willing to meet Eintracht’s €20m valuation.

Signing Kostić to a new deal would be a huge coup for Eintracht Frankfurt. The former Stuttgart and Hamburg winger was influential in Eintracht’s Europa League win against Rangers last season and was named Player of the Tournament.

During his time at Eintracht, Kostić has scored 33 and created 63 across 170 games in all competitions.
