Stuttgart eyeing Groningen winger Kostic

Stuttgart have confirmed their interest in signing Serbia Under-21 winger Filip Kostic from Eredivisie side Groningen.

Stuttgart sporting director Jochen Schneider has revealed that 21-year-old Kostic is on their radar.

Schneider told Bild: "Kostic is one of the most interesting players we have on our list."

Kostic made 38 appearances for Groningen in the Eredivisie last season and chipped in with 11 goals for Erwin van de Looi's men.

He has reportedly attracted the attention of several other clubs across Europe.
