Liverpool have been named among several clubs in the chase for Douglas Costa.
The Bayern Munich winger is keen to make a move this summer having struggled to earn a regular spot under Carlo Ancelotti.
And Bild claim several clubs have been sniffing around including Liverpool and Tottenham.
Juventus, Manchester City, and Manchester United are also mentioned.
But Liverpool are desperate to bolster their attacking options this summer and are believed to be closing in on a deal for Mohamed Salah.
However they are looking at alternatives and Costa appears to be one of those.
German publication Bild claim he is on Jurgen Klopp’s radar.
Klopp has already agreed the signing of Dominic Solanke, who will arrive on July 1, but he wants a forward who can go straight into the team.
And Salah and Costa fit the Klopp prototype of fluid players who can play anywhere in the front line.
Costa would cost around £35million – a similar fee to Salah – but Liverpool would face competition from a number of clubs.
The deal to take Salah from Roma is in the works with wages of £90,000 a week said to be agreed, but an agreement with Roma still to be reached.
