Juventus winger Douglas Costa is set to leave his loan club Bayern Munich this January, and Serie A rivals AC Milan are keen on a move for him to add to their options in attack.


According to a report from Tuttosport (via MilanNews), Milan have been thinking about the possibility of making a move for Douglas Costa, who would bolster their squad even more as they push on for the Serie A title.


The 30-year-old Juventus winger is currently out on loan with Bayern Munich, but the German giants have already told Juventus that they will not be exercising their option to buy, and that they would even be willing to have his loan deal cancelled this January, to take off some of the needless wages that the club is currently paying.


The Brazilian has made 19 appearances in all competitions this season, with just six of them being starts, and as a result, Milan have made an enquiry to see how much Juventus value the winger.


Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick has preferred the likes of Serge Gnabry, Leroy Sane and Kingsley Coman to him, with the latter in particular being in great form this season.


Milan's major stumbling block might be the huge wages that Costa is currently on, with him receiving over €6 million in wages every year, which could be too high for Milan.


It also remains to be seen whether Juventus would allow him to leave to a club that is higher than them in the Serie A table.


Douglas Costa has also been linked with a possible move to Premier League side Wolves, with Nuno Espirito Santo wanting to change the team's disappointing attack this season, scoring just 21 league goals in 20 games, as they sit in 13th.
