Juventus have agreed a deal to sign highly-sought after Serbian international Filip Kostic from Eintracht Frankfurt, 90min understands.

The wing-back has been fantastic for Frankfurt in recent seasons and proved to be a key player in their run to win the Europa League in 2021/22 - beating Rangers on penalties in the final. In what was his fourth campaign at the Deutsche Bank Park, Kostic bagged an impressive 13 assists and seven goals.

Due to that form, Italian giants Juventus have been keen to add the player to their ranks and, according to 90min sources, they have managed to do just that. The 29-year-old is now set to complete his medical in Turin before fully finalising a deal.

Kostic had been heavily linked with West Ham United earlier in the transfer window and the club had even held talks over a deal in late July.

With that transfer not coming to fruition, La Vecchia Signora have been able to swoop in to sign some much needed cover on the left-hand side of their team.

Juve's current first-choice left-back Alex Sandro has largely underperformed in recent seasons, while the club also struggled to field a natural left midfielder all last season - Adrien Rabiot usually filled in in this position, and never well.

Kostic's tactical flexibility will allow him to effectively fill both of those gaps in Juventus' squad and also give Max Allegri the option to play a 3-5-2 or 3-4-3 formation.
