Arsenal Set To Move For Shakhtar Donetsk Attacker Douglas Costa

Reports are out claiming that Shakhtar Donetsk star Douglas Costa is being linked with a move to England.

The 23 year old Brazilian attacker is reluctant to return to Ukraine over their problems with Russia.

“I’m afraid,” he said.

“Everything we read, see or hear about the country is not good. We totally do not know what kind of situation we have to train or play in.”

Ukraine sources report Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is monitoring Douglas Costa’s situation and willing to go to €20 million to land the midfielder.

Tottenham are also interested, but only on an initial loan arrangement.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has close ties with Shakhtar and discussed signing Douglas Costa last summer.
