Diego Costa

Liverpool could bid for want-away Chelsea striker Diego Costa, according to Don Balon.

Costa leaving Chelsea is only a matter of time, and it is clear that there is no way back for him at Stamford Bridge following the deterioration of his relationship with manager Antonio Conte.

However, what is yet to be decided, even at this late stage of the transfer window, is his next destination.

As Don Balon report, a return to former employers Atletico Madrid is top of Costa’s wish-list, but the Spanish outlet claim that he is now growing frustrated with the lack of progress.

Don Balon report that AC Milan are interested in securing Costa’s services, with city rivals Inter also said to be in the running.

Bizarrely, Don Balon note that Liverpool could also enter the bidding if they sell Philippe Coutinho this summer.

It seems unlikely that Chelsea would entertain the possibility of selling Costa to a direct rival.
