The former Bundesliga star Kostic is described as a hard working player and believed to be the perfect signing for Juventus according to Club legend Kovacevic in an interview.
Kostic has been plying his trade at Frankfurt since 2018. Last season, he led them towards Europa League glory while earning recognition as the best player in the tournament.
The wing-back has been fantastic for Frankfurt in recent seasons and proved to be a key player in their run to win the Europa League in 2021/22 – beating Rangers on penalties in the final. In what was his fourth campaign at the Deutsche Bank Park, Kostic bagged an impressive 13 assists and seven goals.
Juventus current first-choice left-back Alex Sandro has largely underperformed in recent seasons, while the club also struggled to field a natural left midfielder all last season Manchester United target Adrien Rabiot usually filled in in this position, and never well.
Kostic’s tactical flexibility will allow him to effectively fill both of those gaps in Juventus’ squad and also give Max Allegri the option to play a 3-5-2 or 3-4-3 formation.
