Crystal Palace could be in for a busy transfer this summer.
The latest reports in England suggest that Crystal Palace are linked with Eintracht Frankfurt attacker Filip Kostic.
The 27-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
Eintracht spent 6 million euros to sign the Serbia international from Hamburger in the summer of 2019. The 27-year-old has a valid contract with Eintracht until June 2023.
He is 27-year-old and has his peak years ahead.
As a member of Serbia national football team, Kostic won 32 caps and he scored 2 goals.
The Serbia international has impressed in the Bundesliga this season and is starting to attract the interest of bigger clubs.
Roy Hodgson wants to sign a new attacker and Kostic is one of the names at the top of his wishlist.
The Serbia international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of attacker Hodgson wants to target in the summer transfer window.
Crystal Palace are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
Filip Kostic would provide a good variety to Crystal Palace’s attack.
According to the report, “Crystal Palace have been encouraged in their interest for Eintracht Frankfurt attacker Filip Kostic. The Frankfurter Rundschau says Palace target Kostic is now said to be available for just £19 million. The global health crisis is forcing the Bundesliga club to accept a reduced fee for their star man, just one year after they sold Ante Rebic, Luka Jovic and Sebastian Haller to AC Milan, Real Madrid and West Ham United respectively.”
