Chelsea has their sights set on signing Brazilian midfielder Douglas Costa, but they are facing fierce competition from a Premier League rival.
Liverpool is also heavily pursuing the 24-year-old, and they are doing everything they can to mess up Chelsea’s plans. They are reportedly prepared to offer him a £20m deal.
Douglas currently plays for Ukrainian Premier League club Shakhtar Donetsk, but he is inevitably on the move to a Premier League squad.
Liverpool is in need of an upgrade in their midfield, which will be losing Premier League legend Steven Gerrard.
This will be crucial for the Reds since they are coming off a disappointing season that ended with them finishing in sixth place.
Manager Brendan Rodgers’ seat became hot after their 6-1 loss to Stoke City that ended the season.
Meanwhile, Chelsea is hoping to hold off their biggest rivals and defend their Premier League title as they deal with the loss of striker Didier Drogba.
