Diego Costa To Make £20m Summer Move?
Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool have been alerted to the news that Spanish striker Diego Costa can leave Atletico Madrid in the summer for just £20million.
Although the summer transfer window is officially closed that doesn’t stop clubs working hard behind the scenes to prepare for future signings, so we’ll keep you up-to-date with all the latest gossip. Today, the race for Diego Costa heats up.
Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool have been alerted to the news that striker Diego Costa can leave Atletico Madrid in the summer for just £20million, according to the Express.
The Brazilian-born hitman has become one of the hottest front-men in Europe this season after scoring 16 goals in 17 games to help Madrid keep pace with La Liga leaders Barcelona and be on the verge of qualifying for the knockout stages of the Champions League.
His form clearly hasn’t gone unnoticed here in the Premier League with the Express claiming that Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool are keen on signing him and the trio have been boosted with the news that Costa has a buy-out clause worth just £20m that can activated at the end of the season.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is believed to be on the look-out for striking reinforcements with the club heavily reliant on Olivier Giroud, while Blues boss Jose Mourinho is also understood to be in the market for a big-name forward with his current crop of strikers failing to find their feet this season.
Liverpool were strongly linked with a move for Costa in the summer and the 25-year-old confirmed he almost moved to Anfield before decided to remain with Madrid, but the report states that Rodgers’ interest remains and all three now have a chance to snap him up for just £20m if the Spanish international opts to try his luck in England next season.
However, they will have to fight off stiff competition for his signature with the newspaper suggesting that Borussia Dortmund have identified Costa as the man to replace Robert Lewandowski, while Real Madrid and Barcelona are also thought to be monitoring his situation.
