Douglas Costa: Linked with move to Liverpool

Zenit St Petersburg have reportedly joined the race to sign Tottenham and Juventus target Douglas Costa this summer.

The Brazilian winger is said to have told Bayern Munich that he wants to quit the club and that has led to several top sides showing an interest in the 26-year-old.

Juve are reported to be the front-runners to sign the former Shakhtar Donetsk man, who will be much cheaper to land than their other top target Angel Di Maria this summer, while Spurs boss Maurico Pochettino is looking to add more strength in depth to his attacking options.

Costa’s pace would certainly be a huge asset to a Tottenham side who will be playing all their home games at Wembley Stadium next season, but it now seems as if they will not only be competing with Juventus for the attacker but Zenit too.

According to Sky Sport (via TuttoJuve) new Zenit coach, Roberto Mancini, has requested that the Russian club try to bring in one of his top targets in Costa, who is expected to leave Bayern for around £30million.
