Bayern Munich winger Douglas Costa has told Juventus he wants to join the club.

According to reports in Italy, the 26-year-old has given his approval for a move but a fee is yet to be agreed between the two giants of European football.

The Brazilian is valued at £44million by the Bavarian side and Juventus are thought to have come in with a bid of £31m.

According to La Gazetta dello Sport, Costa's agent met with Juventus officials on Tuesday and told them of his client's intention of a move to Turin.

Carlo Ancelotti's side seem unlikely to lose money from their initial outlay on Costa after the club splashed out £30m on him from Shakhtar Donetsk in 2015.
