'World class' - Tottenham fans react on Twitter to reported interest in £30m rated Bundesliga star
By Matt Bullin
Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to urge their club to sign Douglas Costa after a report have surfaced claiming Spurs are interested in the Brazilian.
The Mirror reported today that Spurs are lining up a bid for the 26-year-old star after he has become unsettled at the Allianz Arena.
Costa has fallen out of favour at Bayern this term and has only featured 31 times in all competitions so far.
The 18-time Brazil international has started just 13 Bundesliga matches this season, despite being a regular last campaign.
He has also suffered from injuries throughout this season, although he has still netted seven goals and provided nine assists.

Costa joined Bayern from Shaktar Donetsk in 2015 for £25.5million, and he quickly became a fan favourite for his exciting displays down the left flank.
Last season he was a key player for Pep Guardiola’s Bayern, as he made 43 appearances in all competitions and laid on 18 assists, as well as scoring seven goals himself.
Tottenham fans have called for their club to wrap up this deal quickly after the reports surfaced, recognising how big a coup it would be if Mauricio Pochettino could secure his services.
Here is a selection of their Tweets:

Douglas Costa is the missing piece of our puzzle. A player with outrageous talent & pace. An attack of Kane Costa Alli Eriksen is formidable
