Leeds reportedly eyeing Douglas Costa if Liverpool move for Raphinha

Liverpool linked with Leeds winger Raphinha

Raphinha joined Leeds United during the delayed summer window last year.

The Yorkshire outfit are believed to have paid Ligue 1 side Stade Rennais around £16m to bring the Brazilian to Elland Road.

And the former Sporting man has since gone on to enjoy a fine start to life with Leeds.

In 17 Premier League outings so far, the right-winger has been able to score four goals and provide four assists.

Following his starring start to life at Ellan Road, the Brazilian has been linked with a top Premier League side recently.

As per a report from Football Insider, Liverpool are keeping tabs on the 24-year-old.

Little more information is provided regarding a potential deal, though it is added that the Reds are assessing potential attacking options for next season ahead of the summer window.

Leeds linked with Douglas Costa as potential Raphinha replacement

Following Liverpool’s links to Raphinha, a potential replacement for the former Rennais standout has already been touted.

As per Goal, citing Fichajes, Leeds will look to sign Douglas Costa if Liverpool make a move for Raphinha.

The winger is currently on loan at German powerhouse Bayern Munich from Juventus, where he has scored just one goal and provided three assists in 21 outing this season.

When he returns to Italy in the summer, Costa will have just one year left on his current deal.

Costa will also turn 31 later this year, so instead of handing him a new deal, perhaps Juve will look to move him on in the summer to ensure they get some sort of fee back for him?
