'Incredible' - Liverpool fans urge Klopp to sign this 26-year-old Bundesliga superstar
By Matt Bulllin
Liverpool are plotting a summer move for Bayern Munich winger Douglas Costa, according to a report.
German media outlet SportBild claim that Jurgen Klopp is ready to join Tottenham in the race to sign the Brazilian with a £25million swoop this summer.
Costa has had a difficult season under Carlo Ancelotti this term and has featured 31 times, but he only started 18 of those games.
Klopp’s reported interest comes after the Mirror claimed that Tottenham were lining up a summer bid for the 26-year-old winger.
Despite struggling this season, Costa enjoyed the season of his life last campaign, and contributed to 25 goals (18 assists, seven goals) in his 43 league and cup games.

Costa’s attempts to negotiate a new contract have been stonewalled by Bayern’s officials and it opens up the possibility of a move away from the Allianz Arena in the summer.
The 18-time Brazil international moved to Bayern for £26million in the summer of 2015, and it seems he is ready to move on again with Liverpool one of the clubs interested.
Liverpool fans are excited about the possible move for Costa, and they have taken to Twitter to show it.
Here is a selection of their Tweets:
Some people genuinely saying they don't want Douglas Costa at Liverpool. Presumably we should only go after Neymar, Messi, Ronaldo or Suarez

This would free up so much for us on the wing. Please sweet lord, Mane and Costa on the wings would be amazing

Signing Douglas Costa could be Liverpools gain at really keeping Coutinho from moving away

Douglas Costa was incredible in his first year at Bayern with Pep, but hasn't hit the same levels under Carlo. We should definitely try.
