Cape Town - After Arsenal failed to capture Juan Quintero, Arsena Wenger has turned his attention back to Douglas Costa.

The Express report that Arsene Wenger will move to bring in Shakhtar Donetsk's Diego Costa on loan after Arsenal balked at the asking price of Quintero.

Arsenal were reportedly on the verge of signing Colombia's World Cup star Quintero for £16 million until the player's agent rubbished that link and confirmed that a deal for a Quintero would cost £32 million.

Douglas Costa is known to be unhappy in the Ukraine and would jump at the chance to join the London club.

London rivals Tottenham are also monitoring the situation of Costa and may decide to make a move for the talented midfield player.

The 23-year-old Brazilian has helped his club side to win five consecutive league titles in the Ukraine along with six cup competitions.
