The Italian news outlet La Gazzetta dello Sport claims that West Ham’s target Filip Kostic makes one step towards the move to London. The Irons continue working hard on the transfer of the left-midfield.
Earlier it was reported that West Ham United sent an initial offer estimated at £12-13 million. Eintracht Frankfurt rejected the bid as their evaluation of the player is closer to £17 million.
Twitter outlet West Ham News & Views further confirmed that the negotiations between the two sides have improved in the recent days due to the involvement of Alessandro Lucci, founder of the WSA agency. Not so long ago, this agency helped to bring Gianluca Scamacca to London.
Filip Kostic is ‘one step away’ from joining West Ham.
The negotiation with Frankfurt have accelerated in the last few hours, thanks to the mediation of Alessandro Lucci. The Serbian is now one step away from the definitive handshake.

Other reports claim that Kostic has already rejected several offers from different Champions League clubs. However, he thinks that WHU project can be attractive and does not rule out the move.
