    They are all correct. The third is more positive than the other two. All three need commas after "interested'.

    1. I've got a friend interested in it, but he doesn't speak English.
    2. I've got a friend possibly interested in it, but he doesn't speak English.
    3. I've got a friend likely to be interested in it, but he doesn't speak English.

    Are they OK? Not a teacher.
