Leeds may have success if they reunite Barry Douglas with target Helder Costa

Leeds United are reportedly interested in Wolverhampton Wanderers attacker Helder Costa.

According to the Yorkshire Evening Post, the Whites have identified the Premier League winger as a potential target for the summer transfer window.

The report details that it remains to be seen if Wolves will offload the 25-year-old on loan, but it’s expected that a permanent deal is unlikely.

Costa has just had a frustrating campaign in the top-flight, where he made just 30 games across all competitions and scored two goals.

Leeds may find real success if they pair target Costa with their current left-back Barry Douglas.


The duo both played together at Molineux, before Douglas made his £3million (Sky Sports) move to Leeds last summer.

Wolves regularly used a combination of Douglas and Costa on the left flank, which helped them earn promotion from the Championship in emphatic style.

Manager Marcelo Bielsa has a core group of players capable of competing for promotion next season, but a few fresh faces should help them get over the line.

A move for Costa would make sense given his know-how in the Championship and having a familiar face at Elland Road would help.
