Transfer news: Douglas Costa could be on his way to London
Tottenham and Fulham are interested in Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Douglas Costa, but no bids have been received.
The 21-year-old’s agent, Cesar Bottega, claims that head coach Andre Villas-Boas is an admirer of the Brazilian, who has attracted interest from Italy as well.
“Villas-Boas appreciates Douglas Costa’s qualities, although we have not received any official offer,” Bottega told calciomercato.it.
The agent feels that his client he may be out of the Fulham’s price range, although they may choose to spend the fee received from Spurs for Mousa Dembele.
The agent added: “The club is not a great possibility economically, given we know the player’s evaluation is around €18million (£14.3m).”
