Eintracht Frankfurt have confirmed Filip Kostic is on the verge of moving to Juventus at a fee worth €16.
The winger is widely expected to join Juventus and will not play in the UEFA Super Cup final against Real Madrid.
He was not named in the squad travelling to Finland for tomorrow night’s UEFA Super Cup and the reason was confirmed in a press conference by coach Oliver Glasner.
“Kostic is not part of the squad for tomorrow’s game, because he is leaving the club.”
Eintracht Frankfurt won the Europa League last season, while Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid lifted the Champions League trophy.
Kostic had also been in talks with West Ham United, who had offered a larger transfer fee, but the 29-year-old preferred the Bianconeri.
Kostic contributed seven goals and 15 assists in 43 competitive appearances for Eintracht Frankfurt last season and plays on the left side of a trident attack or as a wing-back.
A Serbia international with 48 senior caps, his previous clubs include FC Groningen, VfB Stuttgart and Hamburger SV.
