West Ham United want Filip Kostic but their initial offer for the Eintracht Frankfurt star has been rejected by the Bundesliga side.

The Hammers pulled off a big move on Tuesday night, signing Sassuolo striker Gianluca Scamacca in a big deal.

It’s a major breakthrough for West Ham, who have been desperate for striking additions lately.

David Moyes will now want another winger to provide Scamacca with some quality service – but their primary target is proving difficult to land.

West Ham United want Filip Kostic

West Ham have turned their attention to signing Eintracht Frankfurt wide man Kostic.

The sun is now reporting that West Ham have offered £10m with a further £2.5m for Kostic, who is in the final year of his contract.

However, Frankfurt rejected that offer and are now asking around £16million for their Serbian star.

West Ham are said to be confident of finding a compromise between the two valuations as they push to bring Kostic to East London.

The next challenge would be to convince Kostic to actually join, which doesn’t seem so easy.

Kostic will become a free agent in a year and will likely have his pick of many clubs next summer.

Kostic is also set to play in the Champions League with Frankfurt this season after winning the Europa League – beating West Ham in the semi-finals on their way.

It is suggested that West Ham may have to pay Kostic more than £100,000 a week in order to tempt him to east London.

With seven goals and 15 assists in all competitions last season, Kostic showed his attacking ability to devastating effect.

Capable of playing as a winger or a full-back, Kostic can offer versatility to West Ham should they agree a deal.

The first rejected offer is a setback, but West Ham are not a million miles away from adding a quality winger to accompany Scamacca.
