Report: Leeds face Douglas Costa competition from AC Milan and several PL sides

Leeds United are seemingly not the only English team monitoring Douglas Costa, with Italian outlet TuttoJuve24 reporting that several Premier League sides, as well as AC Milan, want the Juventus winger.

It looks set to be a busy summer for the 30-year-old. His time on loan at Bayern Munich has not gone to plan and it is claimed that the Bavarian giants are not looking to keep him.

Calciomercato recently reported that Leeds are keen on the Brazil international. It was claimed that the Whites were planning to step up their interest in the coming weeks.

But it appears that Marcelo Bielsa’s side will not be the only team hoping to bring him to the Premier League.

According to TuttoJuve24, several English sides want Costa. Meanwhile, they also suggest that AC Milan have joined the running in recent weeks.

The report notes that his value is just £12.8 million. So you could understand if teams were tempted to consider taking a gamble on the wide-man.

He has struggled with injuries in recent years. And his wages are unlikely to be cheap either. Calciomercato previously reported that he is currently on £101,000-a-week.

But he definitely offers a lot of quality. And if he can enjoy some luck with his fitness, he could prove an inspired signing for one of his admirers.

It remains to be seen if Leeds indeed decide to make a move. But it would appear that they may not be the only English option that may find itself on the table in front of Costa.
