Wolverhampton Wanderers are intent on signing Spanish striker Diego Costa when the January winter transfer window opens, according to The Sun.
After Atletico Madrid mutually terminated his contract yesterday, the 32-year-old is a free agent and he is not short of suitors ahead of next month’s window.
In South America, the Middle and the Far East, Costa has a lot of interest from clubs back home, though Arsenal has also been associated with interest as manager Mikel Arteta is looking to improve his striking options next month.
With Chelsea, the Brazilian-born hitman won two Premier League titles, scoring 52 goals in 89 top-flight English games, and Wolves are debating whether to carry him back to England.
Without Mexican striker Raul Jimenez, Nuno Espirito Santo may be on the side for a big chunk of the campaign after sustaining a broken skull against Arsenal last month, and that left Wolves in need of additional firepower in the attack.
Fabio Silva, 18, had to lead the line for the Molineux Stadium outfit, and next month, the club wants to bring in a striker with Premier League experience.
Wolves have been affiliated with Divock Origi of Liverpool, striker Salomon Rondon of Dalian Professional, and striker Hulk of Brazil, and they keep tabs on around 20 others, with Costa joining the list now.
