A number of Wolverhampton Wanderers fans have given their thoughts on the report in The Telegraph claiming Wolves have been offered Douglas Costa as a potential January loan signing.
Molineux boss Nuno Espirito Santo is believed to be on the lookout for a new striker as Raul Jimenez continues to recover from a serious head injury.
Costa, meanwhile, is on the books at Juventus and currently back on loan at Bayern Munich, but has struggled for game time recently and could potentially be in line for a move elsewhere.
He has not played consecutive matches this season and has been limited to three starts in the Bundesliga and three in cup competitions.
And according to The Telegraph, Wolves are among the clubs who have been offered Costa as a potential recruit during the current window.
The 30-year-old is a high-calibre player with plenty of experience and a CV boasting 21 different trophies including two Bundesliga titles, three Scudettos and five Ukrainian championships.
Described as a “talent” and a “special weapon” by Arjen Robben, the Brazilian is a versatile forward who can play across the front line but has usually been deployed on the wings.
With Wolves in need of bolstering their ranks up front, they could certainly do with a player like Costa, at least in the short term.
But what have fans made of the speculation? Here is what some have said on Twitter:
We need anyone capable of kicking a ball right now

Considering that Podence is out and I think our medical team is trying to slowly rehabilitate them, I wouldn’t mind Costa on a short term loan

Concerning as he may be a short term Traore replacement. I have a feeling that by summer-time it may be a choice between William José or Traore.

Costa and Willian Jose is a good window, icing on cake would be a defender anyone on loan not bothered as long as is streetwise and doesnt give away penalties!
