Juventus prepare to offer Douglas Costa to Manchester City as part of a bid for Gabriel Jesus, according to a report.

Juventus are reportedly prepared to offer Douglas Costa to Manchester City this summer as part of a bid for Gabriel Jesus.

The Italian champions are believed to have identified Jesus as a leading summer transfer target, and the Brazilian's agent recently refused to rule out a move to Turin.

Juve are thought to view the South American as the ideal player to replace Gonzalo Higuain, who has only managed five Serie A goals during a difficult season.

According to Calciomercato, the Old Lady are aware that they face a tough task to convince City to part with the striker, though, and will therefore attempt to use Costa as a makeweight.

The 29-year-old has struggled with injury during the 2019-20 campaign, featuring on just 18 occasions for Maurizio Sarri's side, although he has contributed two goals and five assists.

Manchester United have previously been credited with an interest in the former Bayern Munich attacker.
