The signs are growing: Filip Kostic could leave Eintracht. Meanwhile, striker Wout Weghorst has become the focus of Frankfurt.

Frankfurt – Now it has come to the point that even a visit to the hairdresser’s speculation about bills of exchange Filip Kostic heats up. At the haircut with the buddies of the Serbian national team, the star player from Eintracht Frankfurt namely filmed with a mobile phone (what else?), and the nice Mr. Hairdresser was only too happy to know: “And what do you say: your next team?” ‘ whined the friend who once played unsuccessfully for six months at Hertha BSC. Kostic couldn’t help but grin.

It remains to be seen whether this should be regarded as reliable evidence. But the fact is that the 29-year-old winger turned down an offer to extend his contract in Frankfurt. It is said that he has already agreed on a cooperation with Juventus Turin. The famous Italian club is said to offer a three-year contract and almost three million euros net. Filip Kostic would like to do that. He wants to experience something different again.

Eintracht Frankfurt wants to downsize squad – what will happen to Filip Kostic?

In general, Eintracht is about to downsize its bloated squad. Strikers Goncalo Paciencia and Ragnar Ache are among the candidates, with Ache on loan. Just like Ali Akman, who was loaned to the Netherlands last season and had at best a decent season for NEC Nijmegen (21 appearances, six goals). The Turkish striker could go to the second division, Fortuna Dusseldorf is said to be interested. Ajdin Hrustic could also be handed over, but there is no offer. Erik Durm will definitely leave the club, he is the most hopeless player in the squad.

On the other side are the Efforts to sign Bayer Leverkusen striker Lucas Alario, as reported stalled, the Argentine demands five million euros a year. That’s too much for Eintracht. Sebastian Polter from Bochum, on the other hand, is pushing for a decision, he wants clarity.

Eintracht Frankfurt: Kostic could go, Wout Weghorst could come

New to the carousel is Wout Weghorst, who once worked in Wolfsburg with Oliver Glasner worked together. The head coach values ​​the centre-forward very much. Eintracht should, of course, re-examine an engagement. The 29-year-old has just been relegated to England with Burnley FC (two goals in 20 games) and is considered a difficult character. In Wolfsburg he parted in strife, he is also because of strange Corona– Statements have become conspicuous. It is also questionable whether the Dutchman would remain silent if he had to go to the bench, which can definitely happen with the competition in attack. Because the team spirit was always a bargaining chip, unrest from within your own ranks is harmful.

With what Martin Hinteregger would be, which again to the meanwhile ended Business relationship with a right-wing populist known in Austria said: “I have to admit the mistake that I didn’t research who he is, what his background is. For many in Sirnitz of my generation he was not a concept. It will leave a small scratch on my career.” (Ingo Durstewitz)
