Bayern Munich star Douglas Costa has ‘liked’ a tweet linking him with a move to Liverpool.
The 26-year-old has enjoyed a productive season at the Bundesliga giants, scoring seven goals in 32 appearances in all competitions, and has been heavily linked with a switch to Anfield.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is said to be a huge admirer of Costa, weighing up a £26million summer swoop for his services.
And amid speculation that he could leave the Allianz Arena at the end of the season, Costa has teased Liverpool fans on social media.
A user tweeted: ‘Sadio Mane, Philippe Coutinho, Douglas Costa and Roberto Firmino. I can already envisage the best attack in Europe in 2017/18′, and Costa responded with a ‘like’.
Despite emerging as a top target for Liverpool, who are currently third in the Premier League, Costa’s friend has played down the chances of a summer transfer.
‘No way,’ Lucas Cruel said in an interview with German outlet Sport1.
‘Douglas will not go to Liverpool, he prefers to stay at Bayern Munich. It’s a good life here.’
Brazil international Costa has scored 14 goals in 75 appearances for Bayern since signing from Shakhtar Donetsk in the summer of 2015.
