Juventus Confirm Interest In Bayern Munich's Wantaway Star
Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has confirmed that his Serie A club are interested in an unhappy Bayern Munich star.
Brazil international Douglas Costa is not happy with life at the Bavarian club after failing to secure regular first-team football under Carlo Ancelotti.
The 26-year-old is believed to be valued at €45 million (R641 million), and it is no secret that the Bianconeri would like him in Turin next season.
"Douglas Costa is one of our objectives, he is a very good player," Juve manager Allegri recently told Sky Italia.
The Italian tactician also confirmed that his club is interested in Sampdoria forward Patrik Schick and Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny.
"Schick has not arrived yet, but he does things that are out of the ordinary. Szczesny is not done," Allegri added.
"I know that when I get back for pre-season, the club will have signed players who improve the squad, but that is not easy because we have reached such a high level now that there are only a few players around who fit the bill.
"To move on, you need to find players who complete the areas where we are most lacking.
"Numerically, the squad is done, apart from up front. We will just need to replace those who leave, but the club are very good at this."
Bayern are reportedly looking at Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez as a possible replacement for Costa.
