Bayern Munich legend Lothar Matthaus says Liverpool and Tottenham target Douglas Costa could move on this summer.
Costa, 26, is interesting Klopp, according to reports from Tuttosport, but Juventus and Spurs are also believed to be keen on the former Shakhtar Donetsk man.
Costa arrived in the Bundesliga from Russia for £25million in July 2015, but he has failed to realise his huge potential and he has started only 13 Bundesliga games this season.
The Brazilian, who has seven goals in all competitions this season, is though under contract until June 2020 and Bayern are still looking for a fee believed to be around £35million.
And former Germany captain, who won 19 trophies at Bayern Munich, Matthaus clais the German giants are unlikely to stand in the way of Costa moving on at the end of the season.
“Costa is no longer the player he was when he just started at Bayern,” Matthaus told AZ.
“Plus I do not like it that he has been hinting at a transfer in a number of interviews. That is not good for him, nor for Bayern.
“I think the club would not stop him from leaving if they bring in another attacker.”

Liverpool are chasing a Bayern Munich winger, while AC Milan are offering one of their prized assets a new incentive to keep him away from Manchester United, according to the European media.
MILAN OFFER STAR CAPTAINCY TO KEEP MAN UTD AT BAY
AC Milan want to make goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma their new captain next season in an effort to ward off interest from Manchester United and Real Madrid.
The 18-year-old is regarded as the best young keeper in the world and United and Real are ready to offer the player a huge salary hike in a bid to lure him away from the San Siro.
Calciomercato, via La Gazzetta dello Sport, claims that Milan have offered the youngster a contract extension until 2022 with a new 3.2million-a-year euros salary. However, the Premier League and La Liga giants will offer Donnarumma more than twice that figure and are also ready to pay Milan 50m euros to land the player.
United are still in the hunt for a new goalkeeper, with David De Gea expected to be the subject of yet more interest from Real this summer, and it would seem that whichever club has De Gea on their books next season will have a knock-on affect on where Donnarumma’s future will ultimately lie.
ARSENAL HANDED BOOST IN HUNT FOR TURKISH STAR
Arsenal have reportedly been given a transfer boost in pursuit of Turkish wonder-kid Yusuf Yazici.
The 20-year-old midfielder has been in brilliant form for Trabzonspor this season and has been directly involved in an incredible 15 goals in 16 games for the Turkish ouftit.
Arsenal scout Jurgen Kost was in Turkey recently and is believed to have watched Yazici in action, and Turkish-Football claims that Trabzonspor are already looking at alternatives as they expect the player to leave this summer.
The Gunners are not the only club to have been linked with a move for Yazici, with Manchester United also rumoured to have shown an interest.

Mauricio Pochettino has told Tottenham’s players to keep their focus and the fans to trust his judgement amid mounting interest in the club’s star players.
Spurs have been Chelsea’s closest rivals in the Premier League title race and are the form team this year, having won seven games on the bounce before Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final defeat to the Blues.
Their performances have not gone unnoticed by Europe’s elite teams, with Kyle Walker, Danny Rose, Toby Alderweireld, Eric Dier and Dele Alli all reported to be attracting interest.
Former Barcelona midfielder Xavi has even suggested Alli is exactly the type of player his previous manager Pep Guardiola would like to sign for Manchester City this summer.
Pochettino said he could make no guarantees on the future and referenced last week’s death of Tottenham under-23s coach Ugo Ehiogu as an example of the need to live in the present.
“I cannot guarantee anything in life. The most important is to enjoy the present,” Pochettino said.
“I am so sad, we have to enjoy the present and not think about the future.
“In the future we take the best decision for the club. After three years you can see how the team is improving every year and all our decisions so far are good.
“Trust in the club that we will take the best decision for the club to achieve, to improve next season again, that’s most important.
“We care a lot about the club and now we must focus on the present to try to help the team and club to be there if Chelsea drop points.
“It will be special if in the last season at White Hart Lane we win the Premier League.
“In the next three to four weeks we must give our best, big efforts for all of us, for the players to try to focus, don’t think about holidays, rumours, what will happen next season.
“I want the last three to four weeks the big effort from everyone to achieve. Then we can congratulate everyone and try next season.”

LONDON -- Mauricio Pochettino has offered no guarantees that Dele Alli will still be at Tottenham Hotspur next season, while urging his players to ignore transfer speculation and focus on beating Chelsea to the Premier League title.

Manchester United want to pair up Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid stars in their attack next season, while Kyle Walker could be ready to quit Tottenham, according to Tuesday’s papers.
MOURINHO HOPES TO WIN RACE TO SIGN ALVARO MORATA
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has reportedly called former club Real Madrid to discuss a move for Spain striker Alvaro Morata, 24, this summer.
Mourinho hopes his past relationship with the Bernabeu club will put United at the ‘front of the queue’ should Madrid decide to cash in on the striker this summer.
Morata has been heavily linked with a move to Chelsea, but it is thought the Blues prefer a move for the former striker Romelu Lukaku, who is destined to quit Everton this summer.
That would, according to The Sun and via Don Balon, likely leave Morata a straight choice between Manchester United and AC Milan should he quit Real.
Morata has cut a frustrated figure this season, where he has scored 19 goals for club and country, despite being reduced to a role on the bench for most of the campaign.
It’s believed a bid of around £60million would tempt Real to do business with United hoping to pair the striker in attack with Marcus Rashford or Anthony Martial and alongside Antoine Griezmann, with a £84m deal for the latter reportedly already agreed.
WALKER ‘MAY QUIT TOTTENHAM’ AS HUGE CLUBS LURK
Kyle Walker will reassess his Tottenham future at the end of the season after holding talks with manager Mauricio Pochettino
The Daily Telegraph claims the England star has held a meeting with Pochettino to discuss his future, with Bayern Munich reportedly joining Manchester United and Manchester City in the race to sign the £45million-rated star.
It’s believed Bayern Munich technical director Michael Reschke was at Wembley on Saturday for the FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea, with Walker his main target.
However, he’d have been disappointed to see Walker left out of the starting line-up with Kieran Trippier selected ahead of him – and it’s claimed the player’s exclusion has further pushed talk he could leave.
Spurs would no doubt fight to keep their right-back, who only signed a new deal worth £70,000 late last year.
But with the player able to double his wages with a move elsewhere, Tottenham may need to up his pay again to keep him happy.
Speaking about interest in his players last week, manager Maurcio Pochettino said: “If some clubs are interested in some players it is very clear you need to knock on the door of Daniel Levy.
“If any player is going to leave the club it is always the club’s decision. All the players today have contracts for the next two or three years, minimum, and we’re not worried.
“I invite all the clubs that want players from Tottenham to come to the training ground and visit our chairman Daniel Levy.”

Dutch legend Frank de Boer has urged Barcelona to sign Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen this summer.
De Boer, who coached Eriksen at Ajax before the Danish midfielder moved to Spurs for just £11million in 2013, believes that the 25-year-old would be a big hit in Spain and wouldn’t be daunted by the move, according to a report in Football Oranje.
He told Ziggo Sports, “I think he’s has a great career in the making.
“First Ajax, then to Tottenham at the highest level. I think he is ready for a step higher. Tottenham is a great club, but he has everything that a Barcelona player needs. Christian has an overview, work ethic … Left, right, assists, he can score. He is quite complete,”
Eriksen signed a new Spurs deal in September last year that will take him through to 2020, but if Barca came calling it would certainly be difficult for the player not to have his head turned – no matter how much progress Tottenham have made under the leadership Mauricio Pochettino.

However, Saturday's FA Cup semifinal defeat to Chelsea brought the issue back into the spotlight.
