Douglas Costa ‘could make a shock move to Wolves from Juventus as agent Jorge Mendes looks to sort out the winger’s uncertain future under Andrea Pirlo’
- Jorge Mendes is reportedly trying to push for a Douglas Costa move to Wolves
- The Brazilian forward’s future at Juventus is uncertain under boss Andrea Pirlo
- With Diogo Jota moving to Liverpool, a spot has opened up in Wolves’ front line
Douglas Costa could be making a surprise transfer to Wolverhampton Wanderers, according to Tuttosport.
Agent Jorge Mendes, who also looks after Cristiano Ronaldo, is looking for a new club for Costa, who may not have much of a future at Juventus.
He is currently looking to push forward a deal with Wolves, who are looking for a replacement winger after selling Diogo Jota to Liverpool in a £41million deal.

The Brazilian’s future at Juventus is uncertain under new manager Andrea Pirlo
This leaves a spot open for Costa, but Juventus will likely also be looking for a replacement themselves before sanctioning his exit.
Costa’s future under new boss Andrea Pirlo is uncertain, having only played an eight-minute cameo in their 3-0 win over Sampdoria in Juventus’ first game of the Serie A season.
Since arriving at Juventus in 2018, Costa has made 102 appearances, scoring 10 goals and providing 21 assists.

Costa joining Wolves could provide Nuno Espirito Santo with a potent attacking force. Combined with Adama Traore, the pair would create some frightening pace down the flanks.
Fiorentina’s Federico Chiesa and Shanghai Shenhua’s Stephan El Shaarawy are said to be potential candidates to replace Costa in Turin, with the club looking to bring in more Italian talent.
Manchester United are also thought to be in the hunt for Costa, having put in an initial bid of £27million last month.
Meanwhile, Alvaro Morata has passed his medical ahead of returning to the Old Lady from Atletico Madrid.
