Diego Costa has been one of the most talked about names in this summer market. The 33-year-old Brazilian-born Spaniard has been without a team since leaving Atlético Mineiro in January.
His destination, now, may be in England. Specifically, in Wolverhampton. Wolves, according to The Athletic, have activated the Diego Costa option after recent signing Sasa Kalajdzic damaged his anterior cruciate knee ligament on his debut against Southampton.
Raúl Jiménez remains the only pure number 9 available to Bruno Lage.
The former Atletico player will travel to England on Tuesday to undergo a medical and assess his fitness. If all goes well, Diego Costa will sign a contract with Wolverhampton and immediately start his second adventure in the Premier League.
We remember that Diego Costa signed with Chelsea in 2014 for 38 million euros from Atlético. With “blue”, he played a total of 120 games, scoring 59 goals and providing 23 assists.
