Bookies slash odds on Tottenham & Chelsea to sign Brazilian star


Douglas Costa

Is Douglas Costa heading to the Premier League?

The back page of the Daily Mirror on Thursday claims Spurs are keen on Bayern Munich winger Douglas Costa.

Bayern may be open to selling Costa as he’s fallen down the pecking order at the Allianz Arena this summer.

Costa, who was very impressive under Pep Guardiola last season, has only made 17 starts for Bayern this term, while Franck Ribery is now preferred by Carlo Ancelotti down the left flank.

Tottenham v Chelsea for Costa

As a result of the rumours today, the odds have been slashed on Costa joining a Premier League side.

Douglas Costa is set to be the next marquee arrival at Tottenham, according to Ladbrokes.

The bookies make it an even-money shot he heads to White Hart Lane this summer, with Chelsea 4/1 to sign the Bayern Munich ace.

Chelsea & Arsenal also keen

Arsenal are 5/1 shots to beat Spurs to his signature, while Manchester United (7/1), Barcelona (8/1) and Man City (10/1) are also in the running to snap up the Brazilian.

Ladbrokes News’ Dave Burin said: “It’s hard to call this weekend’s clash between Tottenham and Chelsea, but the race for Costa is one tussle where Spurs definitely have the upper hand.”
