Fabrizio Romano has revealed Tottenham’s pursuit of Eintracht Frankfurt wing-back Filip Kostic is not currently at an advanced stage.
Spurs are expected to be in for a busy summer after ending their Premier League campaign in strong fashion by qualifying for the Champions League.
The club also became the beneficiary of a £150 million cash boost from owners ENIC, which should go a long way to strengthening Antonio Conte’s options (Tottenham Hotspur).
The Italian coach has reportedly drawn out a list of demands ahead of the transfer window, identifying his playing squad needs up to six acquisitions to be competitive (Telegraph).
A new left wing-back is thought to be on the list which has led Tottenham in the direction of Kostic (Mirror), who impressed in Frankfurt’s run to the Europa League crown.
Football.London also reported that Tottenham are set to make a move for the Eintracht Frankfurt wing-back this summer.
While the 29-year-old appears to be firmly on Spurs’ radar, Romano has since issued an update on the situation, claiming things are ‘still not advanced’ at this stage.

Kostic, who is entering the final year of his contract, scored three goals and assisted six during his European campaign, while he directly contributed to a further 13 in the Bundesliga (Transfermarkt).

It is early days yet considering Spurs just announced they will have significant funds to use this summer, so it will take time for things to fall into place.
Hopefully, some kind of deal can be reached well before pre-season as that would give the incoming player plenty of time to bed in. But we have to appreciate that it will be a tough move to complete given he is one of their key players.
