Juventus are making moves to sign Douglas Costa from Bayern Munich, with the German champions looking to generate a €45 million fee, according to reports.

The Brazil international emerged as a target for the Serie A champions in recent weeks and talks with his representatives on Tuesday suggest that he is willing to move to Turin.

Injuries limited the 26-year-old's involvement in Bayern's Bundesliga-winning campaign under Carlo Ancelotti, starting just 14 of the 23 games he played.

While Ancelotti is said to be willing to let him go, with Bayern unhappy with an interview Costa gave to Bild am Sonntag in February in which he admitted to not being happy, the Italian coach will look to add another winger to his squad before allowing the deal to go through, even after the addition of Serge Gnabry from Werder Bremen.

The German side are hoping to bring in €45m for a player they bought from Shakhtar Donetsk for €30m in 2015 and is contracted to the club until 2020.
