West Ham: Insider shares big Kostic update after opening bid -West Ham Transfer Rumours

West Ham United insider Claret & Hugh have shared a big transfer update for supporters involving left-wing-back target Filip Kostic.

The Lowdown: Hammers eye move…

Hammers boss David Moyes has already seen a fair few Premier League additions in east London so far and there is still over a month of this summer transfer window remaining.

Where will West Ham finish at the end of 2022/2023?

West Ham have sealed agreements for defender Nayef Aguerd, midfielder Flynn Downes, goalkeeper Alphonse Areola and, most recently, Sassuolo striker Gianluca Scamacca.

The latter man represents the end of a long, drawn out search for a new striker and alternative to Michail Antonio, but despite the club’s great success in finally signing a fresh forward option, Moyes is by no means finished.

The Latest: West Ham make offer for Kostic, talks ongoing…

Indeed, club insider C&H have shared a major update on West Ham’s attempts to sign defender Kostic from Eintracht Frankfurt.

They claim the east Londoners have made their opening offer, lodging a ‘first official bid’ for the 29-year-old amounting to around £12million.

While the Bundesliga side are holding out for a fee closer to £18m, West Ham are apparently ‘hopeful’ of agreeing a £15m deal and finding middle ground.

C&H add that talks ‘continue’ over signing Kostic for Moyes.

The Verdict: Make the move…

Lauded as a ‘phenomenal‘ wing-back by journalist Ryan Taylor, the Serbia international was a revelation for Frankfurt last term and played a key role in their Europa League triumph.

He also grabbed an impressive 15 assists in all competitions over 21/22, backing why Moyes is very keen on his signing at the London Stadium.

With Aaron Cresswell reaching the twilight years of his career, snapping up the versatile Kostic to a deal anywhere around the £12-18million price range seems like good business.
