Juventus: two L1 clubs including OM on Kostic!


By: Manu Tournoux

Will Filip Kostic still wear the colors of Juventus Turin next season? Revealed under the colors of Eintracht Frankfurt, the 31-year-old midfielder decided to give new impetus to his career by crossing the Alps during the 2022 summer transfer window. At the end of four full seasons with the German team punctuated by a title in the Europa League, the Serbian international (60 caps, 3 goals) signed for Juventus Turin for a check for €12 million. If his arrival in Piedmont raised many questions, the native of Kragujevac quickly made everyone agree during his first season with the Bianconeri.

Recruited for his passing quality, the former Stuttgart and Hamburg player has adapted rather well to his new environment. An essential cog in Massimiliano Allegri's system, the 31-year-old has appeared 54 times (including 46 starts) with the Old Lady in all competitions, all while scoring 3 goals and providing 11 assists. Hailed by the Italian press for his consistency, Filip Kostic is experiencing a checkered second half of the season. Less influential in the construction of the game and still looking for his first goal since the resumption in August, the Serbian is gradually losing the favor of his coach, who prefers to rely on young nuggets in midfield such as Samuel Iling- Junior or even Andrea Cambiaso to the detriment of the Serb.

OM remains attentive to the situation of Filip Kostic

Absent from Allegri's starting XI during the crucial meetings against Atalanta and Napoli in Serie A, Filip Kostic also takes a dim view of Federico Chiesa's return to form and could see his playing time drastically reduced in the coming weeks. Enough to call your future in Piedmont into question? While he has two years left on his contract with the Bianconeri, the Piedmontese leaders have no plans to extend his stay in the north of Italy and are even considering getting rid of him next summer, in particular to replenish their crates. This is good since, according to the information from Tuttosporttwo Ligue 1 clubs would be interested in the idea of ​​securing the services of the Serbian midfielder.

As such, the transalpine media gives more details by affirming that Olympique de Marseille could be the Serbian's next exit. In search of a specialist at the left winger position for the coming season, the Marseille club would have made the native of Kragujevac one of the priorities. To achieve his goals, the president of the current seventh in the French championship, Pablo Longoria, could capitalize on the good relationship he has with the player's agent, namely Alessandro Lucci, to close the deal. Note that the latter played a key role in the arrival of Joaquin Correa last summer and whose future on the Canebière should be studied in the coming weeks.
