The Bianconeri are desperate to add the 29-year-old Serbian winger to their squad this month, believing him to be the perfect addition to inject a little more creativity and bite to their attack. Talks between the two clubs have been slow but things are finally close to being completed now.
As reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Kostic deal almost collapsed yesterday after Eintracht Frankfurt asked Juventus to pay €2m more on the fixed part of their agreement. The Turin side and Kostic’s entourage worked hard to patch up the distance and an agreement was eventually reached.
The exact figures of the deal are still unclear but it’s understood to be in the region of €17-18m, which also includes various add-ons.
The Serbian winger is expected to arrive in Turin today to undergo a round of medicals before putting pen to paper on a three-year deal worth around €3m net per season.
