Douglas Costa TEAMtalk

Wolves have reportedly been offered a loan deal for a Juventus attacker to help bolster their injury-hit frontline.

The Molineux outfit are in the hunt for attacking reinforcements after leading marksman Raul Jimenez suffered a fractured skull in late November.

Reports emerged on Wednesday of a potential deal for Real Sociedad attacker Willian Jose, although it would appear that Juve star Douglas Costa is also a target.

The Daily Telegraph (as cited by sportslens) claims that Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have been offered the 30-year-old on a temporary deal.

The Brazilian is currently back at his old club Bayern Munich on loan. However, he has struggled for game time, starting just one Bundesliga game in the last two months.

The report adds that Costa’s contract in Germany could be cut short for the right deal, and his agent has offered him to Wolves amongst other clubs.

Costa has just 18 months left on his deal in Turin, so any switch to the Premier League would be temporary.

Costa career on the slide

It remains to be seen if Nuno will agree to the move, with Costa having scored just once in 15 appearances this term. He also has two assists to his name.

In fact, Costa’s career has been on the slide since 2017-18 when he notched four goals and 14 assists in 31 games.

And with Wolves in need of goals from the off, it would appear that a move for Costa is unlikely at this stage.

Nuno’s men have lost six of their last nine Premier League games and are currently 14th in the table, 10 points off the top six.
