Douglas Costa is poised to sign with Chelsea in the coming days, according to a number of reports.
The attacking midfielder, currently at Ukraine’s Shakhtar Donetsk, will supposedly sign while representing his country in the Copa America.
With the arrival of Costa, rumours surrounding the potential departure of Oscar could gain credence. However, nothing appears conclusive on that front yet. The signing of another midfielder could just be for squad depth – an important element for any team aiming to compete for every piece of silverware.
Costa has previously expressed a desire to work under José Mourinho. He has also stated that current Blues player Willian is “a friend for life.”
With the signing of Costa reportedly imminent, fans await further events in the transfer window.
