Douglas Costa arrives for Juve medical ahead of move from Bayern

Douglas Costa has arrived in Turin and is due to undergo a medical at Juventus ahead of an initial loan move from Bayern Munich.

The Italian side have agreed to pay a loan fee of €6 million, and the club has an obligation to buy Costa for a fee of €40m.

The Brazil international struggled for game time throughout the 2016-17 season, making just 23 Bundesliga appearances, though he did score four goals and provided six assists.

Juve have embarked on an aggressive summer of recruitment, signing Juan Cuadrado on a permanent deal from Chelsea, Rodrigo Bentancur from Boca Juniors and Medhi Benatia from Bayern.

Costa, who was also linked with Tottenham, has made a total of 77 appearances for Bayern, scoring 14 goals, and also made over 200 appearances for Shakhtar Donetsk in Ukraine.
