West Ham United target weighing up future with current club amid Champions League dilemma

The latest West Ham United news on Saturday.

West Ham United target Filip Kostic is reportedly weighing up his future at Eintracht Frankfurt.

The Hammers are trying to lure the winger to the London Stadium in this transfer window and they look to bolster their options going forward.

Kostic is ‘yet to decide’ whether to join David Moyes’ side following their bid of £10million plus add-ons for his signature, as reported by Sky Sports (live transfer blog, 23.07.22, 12.47).

Things to consider

The Croatia international is a key man for Frankfurt and helped them win the Europa League last season.

He is one of the first names of the team sheet for the Bundesliga side and gets plenty of game time.

Kostic joined the club back in 2018 and has since made 170 appearances in all competitions, chipping in with 33 goals.

Prior to his move to Deutsche Bank Park, he played for Radnički 1923, FC Groningen, Stuttgart and Hamburg.

Frankfurt are in the Champions League in the next campaign, whereas West Ham aren’t.

However, Kostic only has a year left on his contract and at the age of 29, this may be his last chance for a big contract in the Premier League.

It is worth noting though that his current team risk losing him for free in June 2023 if they don’t cash in on him now or in January if they can’t agree an extension with him.

The ball lies in his court right now and the Hammers wait.
