West Ham want Filip Kostic but fear they won’t be able to lure the Eintracht Frankfurt star to East London this summer.

The Hammers are on the verge of a huge breakthrough with Sassuolo striker Gianluca Scamacca undergoing a medical.

West Ham’s pursuit of attacking additions doesn’t end there though with David Moyes also keen on adding a new winger.

Keane Lewis-Potter was a target before he made his move to Brentford and Moyes is now looking elsewhere – but may miss out again.

West Ham want Filip Kostic

Moyes has turned his attention to Eintracht Frankfurt star Filip Kostic in his search of wide additions.

Kostic played a key role for Frankfurt as they won the Europa League, with their run including a win over West Ham.

The London Evening Standard note that West Ham are prepared to pay the asking price of around £12.75million for Kostic.

However, West Ham fear that they won’t be able to convince Kostic into signing this summer.

Kostic has just year left on his Frankfurt deal and there is a fear that he will simply see out that year whilst playing in the Champions League with Frankfurt.

West Ham are really pushing to land Kostic but they are seemingly pessimistic about their chances of securing a deal.

Kostic, 29, was superb last season as he racked up seven goals and 15 assists in all competitions, and he has even been branded ‘extraordinary’ by Fredi Bobic.

Speedy and with great delivery into the box, Kostic can play as a winger or wing back and that versatility may appeal to Moyes.

West Ham are willing to pay what’s needed but if Kostic wants to wait and weigh up his options, what more can the Hammers do?

Having seen deals for the likes of Armando Broja and Amadou Onana stall in recent days, West Ham really need a definitive answer soon on Kostic.
