Wolverhampton Wanderers reportedly leapfrog Manchester United in the race to sign Juventus winger Douglas Costa, having identified him as a replacement for Diogo Jota.

Wolverhampton Wanderers have reportedly identified Juventus winger Douglas Costa as a potential replacement for Diogo Jota.

Jota joined Liverpool last week in a deal which could rise to £45m, leaving Wolves looking to bring in cover ahead of next month's transfer deadline.

Italian outlet Calciomercato claims that Costa is one of the targets to have been earmarked by Wolves, with Juve keen to offload the winger due to his recent injury record.

The 30-year-old has two years remaining on his contract at the Allianz Stadium but could still cost Nuno Espirito Santo's side in excess of £32m.

Manchester United have also reportedly looked at Costa as a possible alternative to Jadon Sancho, but the Borussia Dortmund man remains their top target for the ongoing window.

Wolves are now thought to be leading the race for the Brazilian's signature, and any deal could come close to their club-record transfer fee, which they broke to sign Fabio Silva for £35m earlier this summer.
