Liverpool could compete with Tottenham Hotspur for the signing of Shakhtar Donetsk winger Douglas Costa, SportsDirect News understands.

The Brazilian has been in impressive form for the Ukranian side this season, scoring a recent wonder-goal in the Champions League against Real Sociedad, and now looks like attracting serious interest from England.

Tottenham emerged as potential suitors for Costa earlier this week, but Liverpool now look set to join the chase for his signature this January as they also hope to improve their attacking options in the middle of the season.

The Reds were also strongly linked with former Shakhtar star Henrikh Mkhitaryan during the summer, before he eventually joined Borussia Dortmund, but it has now emerged that Costa also caught the eye of manager Brendan Rodgers.

Shakhtar, however, will not want to lose another key player after both Mkhitaryan and Brazilian midfielder Fernandinho, now of Manchester City, left the club in the summer transfer window.
