Leeds: Whites boosted in attempts to sign Douglas Costa - Leeds United

Leeds United have been boosted in their attempts to sign Douglas Costa, with Juventus potentially allowing him to leave this summer.

Marcelo Bielsa is expected to dip into the transfer market at the end of the season in order to add more quality and depth to his squad.

The Whites have done well in their first season back in the Premier League, sitting 11th at the moment, but that doesn’t mean new faces won’t arrive.

Leeds have been linked with a move for Costa in recent weeks and they could now continue to express their interest following fresh developments.

Leeds handed boost in quest to sign Costa

According to Calciomercato, Juventus are willing to allow the on-loan, £10.8m-rated Bayern Munich star to leave on a free transfer this summer, despite his current deal not expiring until next year.

The Serie A giants see no future for Costa at the club and his substantial wages are also proving to be problematic.

Transfer Tavern take

Costa is a renowned name who would likely be an exciting addition at Elland Road, even if his very best days are behind him. Maurizio Sarri, his former manager at Juventus, hailed him as an “extraordinary weapon” for his attacking abilitities, with the Brazilian often hitting double figures in terms of goal contributions per season.

Blessed with quick feet, great skill and a constant threat in the final third, the 30-year-old could bring another attacking dimension to Bielsa’s team if he comes to Yorkshire.

In other news, Leeds’ interest in one player has seemingly been confirmed in an interesting way. Read more about it here.
