West Ham have been told that they will need to pay more money if they wish to sign Filip Kostic this summer

Hammers boss David Moyes has done some good business this transfer window and added some depth to the squad that will improve their chances of getting another European place by the end of next season

But Moyes has not signed as many players that he would have liked by this stage of the transfer window and is hoping to do a couple of deals between now and the end of the summer – with Kostic a player that the club want

According to recent reports, West Ham have submitted a £15million bid for Eintracht Frankfurt star Kostic – and it was believed that the German side were ready to accept that amount of money

But there has been interest from other clubs over the past few weeks – which has bumped up the asking price for the defender – and TalkSport pundit Alex Crook has claimed that the Hammers will now need to pay more cash if they want to sign the star

Crook told GIVEMESPORT: “I think that the feeling in Germany is if he wants to go then Frankfurt won’t stand in his way.

“I think they want a bit more than West Ham’s initial offer but it’s not 100% guaranteed that he does want to go because obviously Frankfurt are in the Champions League and it would mean sacrificing that to drop into the Conference League.”

Only Thomas Muller and Lionel Messi have registered more assists than Filip Kostic in Europe’s top 5 leagues since August 2018

This is most certainly a deal that could be a real bargain – as Kostic has proven that he is more than capable of adding goals to the attack

And considering the Hammers have struggled in that department in recent seasons – Moyes would love to pull this off
