Report: 'Outstanding' player is now really tempted to join West Ham, Moyes willing to pay his asking price

Eintracht Frankfurt’s Filip Kostic is now tempted by the prospect of joining West Ham United before the transfer window shuts.

The Evening Standard report that Kostic has been taking his time over deciding his next move this summer.

That is because he has just one year left on his contract and could move as a free agent in 12 months’ time.

At 29, this is likely to be his last big move and he is mulling it over. He could also potentially earn a higher wage or signing on fee as a free transfer.

Kostic tempted by West Ham

That said, they say he is coming around to the idea of moving to east London, and West Ham will continue to monitor his situation.

A number of Italian clubs are apparently keen on Kostic, but that does not mean that he is not open to the prospect of joining David Moyes’ men.

And the Hammers are willing to pay the asking price for him, despite the prospect of getting him for free in a year’s time.

Former Frankfurt boss Adi Hutter called Kostic ‘outstanding‘, and has been exceptional down the left flank with Frankfurt.

That is an area of the pitch David Moyes really needs to strengthen, and it seems that there is still a chance they could get their man.

It just remains to be seen how long West Ham are willing to wait for Kostic to make up his mind before they move onto other targets, with the Premier League season now looming.
