Juventus will reportedly look to complete the signing of Tottenham and West Ham target Filip Kostic before this Wednesday’s UEFA Super Club clash between Eintracht Frankfurt and Real Madrid in Helsinki.

According to Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla, the Serie A giants will look to sign the Bundesliga superstar as a new Juventus player in the next 48 hours, with the Turin-based side close to beating both West Ham and Tottenham to Kostic’s signature.

The Serbian international has been heavily linked with both sides this summer with Kostic having just one year remaining on his current contract with Frankfurt, and after guiding the German side to a historic European title last season in the UEFA Europa League, interest has been high in the 29-year-old.

However, despite strong links to the Premier League this summer, mainly to West Ham, Juventus now look set to win the race to sign Kostic, who is heading to Italy at what is arguably the peak of his career after a fantastic season with Frankfurt last campaign.

Hailed by former Frankfurt director Fredi Bobic as an ‘extraordinary’ player, Juventus has done well in beating two big Premier League sides to Kostic’s signature, and for West Ham and Tottenham, they could now be left scrambling for a new attacking signing before the closure of the window in over three weeks time.

Indeed, Kostic would have been an ideal signing for this summer given the winger’s record last season as well as his age and price tag, but with Juventus such an alluring draw for the attacker, it’s no wonder why West Ham and Tottenham were beaten by their European rivals for the forward.

Kostic is entering the prime of his career, and any side looking to recruit the Serbian winger was always going to land themselves with a bargain, which is exactly what Juventus seem to have done ahead of the start of the new Serie A season.

The attacker is well-suited to the Italian league, and for Juventus, Kostic will be an incredible addition to the squad’s forward options as the Old Lady look to bring the Scudetto back to Turin and hope to impress in the UEFA Champions League, much to the dismay of Tottenham and West Ham.
