Douglas Costa of interest to Napoli

Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Douglas Costa’s agent claims that Napoli continue to show “interest” in the Brazilian, with a January swoop possibly on the cards.

“Douglas would be happy in Naples,” began Cesar Bottega to Radio CRC this afternoon.

“Napoli will be interested in young players, and Douglas is one of the promising players they are observing at the moment.”

The 21-year-old playmaker has already made 75 appearances for the Ukrainian outfit, scoring 16 goals.

“Napoli compete in an important League and my client would like to wear the blue colours,” continued Bottega.

“If there is interest from a club that big it is normal to want to represent them, we just have to wait and see if an offer does actually materialise.

“His price tag would be impossible to say at the moment, we need to discuss these matters with Napoli.”
