According to Italian publication Tuttosport, Tottenham are one among a whole host of European clubs who are interested in adding Juventus winger Douglas Costa to their squad in the summer.

The likes of Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City and Manchester United are also said to be tracking the Brazilian.

It is reported that the Serie A giants want more than thee £34 million they paid to Bayern Munich to make his transfer permanent last summer.

The 28-year-old, who was a star in Turin last season, has found playing time a bit hard to come by this term, making most of his appearances off the bench.

While some Spurs fans on hearing the news felt Costa was exactly was Tottenham needed, others were more skeptical about the signing given his age and failure to live up to the hype surrounding him earlier in his career.

Meanwhile, many others also felt that the signing was unlikely to occur anyway given the reported asking price.

Here’s how some fans reacted to the rumour on social media:


Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Over £34m for someone with no sell on value in 2 or 3 years time. That isn’t the Spurs way. If we spend that kind of money, it will be on someone younger with scope to improve. Certainly he is more the kind of star we need, rather than someone like Jack Grealish. But we need a younger player to get value. Moura was on the bench, but Wednesday’s game showed our current issue. Eriksen just not in form at all and only Son looked dangerous and likely to open up a deep defence. With Dembele gone, we don’t have anybody to carry the ball and go past players. Davies and Trippier also the problem, in they have no pace and won’t take on their man. I keep saying full back is our weakest area and is holding the club back since Walker went and Rose injured more. Davies was only ever good as a defender and Trippier was fine as back up. But wouldn’t get into any of the other top 6 sides and neither would Davies.
