Spanish side Valencia are reportedly keen on Serbia international Filip Kostic.
The 25-year-old pacey winger is one of the highest earners at the German club Hamburger SV and looks set to lead the exodus following the relegation to Bundesliga 2.
Valencia have been long-term admirers of Kostic having followed him closely for the past two years and will look to exploit the fact HSV will sell their biggest stars during the summer transfer window.
According to the latest reports coming from European papers, negotiations between the two sides are already advanced. Premier League side Southampton were said to be in the running for his signature but the prospect of playing the Champions League in Spain looks too tempting.
Valencia are expected to pay around €8 million for Filip Kostic’s services.
Kostic joined Hamburger SV in the summer of 2016 from Stuttgart in a €12.6 million deal. During his two-year spell with HSV time Filip Kostic made 65 appearances and scored 9 goals.
His contract with the German club runs until 2021.
