Everton manager, Ronald Koeman has expressed his interest in signing Diego Costa from Chelsea. The Toffees boss could seek to sign the Spaniard on a short-term deal according to The Sun.
As The Sun report, speaking at a press conference, Koeman was asked if the next signings would be loan moves or permanent ones. The Dutchman questioned if it was about Diego Costa and then said, “Of course you like to sign players for the future, but if you can get the best one that way, then why not? That’s for six months, the season, two years. It’s difficult because it needs to be a quality player or a young player who can develop or improve.”
The Sun claim that Diego Costa has no future at Chelsea and is free to leave the club. The tabloid believe he wants to return to Atletico Madrid but they cannot sign players this summer because they have a transfer embargo.
Joining Everton would be a good move for both Costa and Chelsea. The player would be able to play regularly and with him scoring crucial goals for the Toffees, Chelsea would benefit with the points he scrapes off the title rivals.
Costa was in Brazil but, according to the Telegraph, is on his way to Spain to force a move to Atletico. However, if the clubs are not able to agree on a fee for him, it could push the striker to look for a move elsewhere.
