Serie A holders Juventus are planning a summer approach for Bayern Munich's Douglas Costa, who is seemingly frustrated with his stay at the Allianz Arena.

The 21-time Brazil international was restricted to just 14 league starts during the previous campaign with injuries also hampering his progress.

Both Barcelona and Liverpool have been touted as potential destinations for Costa over the past week, but according to, the Old Lady have begun talks over a proposed £40m deal for the 26-year-old.

Costa has won two Bundesliga titles since his arrival to the Bundesliga back in the summer of 2015. However, his limited playing time in the big games has urged him to consider his future ahead of the summer transfer window.

The attacker bagged seven goals during the 2016/17 season where he played second fiddle to Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben for the wider positions.

Premier League club Tottenham are also in the hunt for the former Shakhtar Donetsk man, but no offer has been made as yet for his services.
