Wolverhampton are desperate to sign €30m-rated Chelsea ex-attacker
Wolves planning shock move for Atletico Madrid centre-forward Diego Coast and prepare to make an offer during this transfer window. Nuno Espírito Santo wants to improve the attack, and his primary target is Spain international who perfectly knows Premier League. He spent four years in Chelsea and won the PL two times.
Everton are also keen to sign him, and there will be a real contest for the player. Alvaro Morata joined the Spanish club, and there are too many strikers. Diego joined the Los Rojiblancos from the London club in 2018 with a €66m deal. He is one of the best centre-forwards in Europe and scored many incredible goals during his career.
Last season, Costa played 21 games, scored five goals and provided three assists in all competitions. It is an excellent consequence, and he can improve his results during the next campaign. The 30-year-old centre-forward has contracted with the Spanish club until 2021, and his release clause is around €30m.
He is a regular member of the Furia Roja line-up and also helped them to reach the playoff in the 2018 World Cup, but after losing in a penalty shoot-out against Russia, they knocked out from the tournament.
Wolverhampton had an impressive result in the Premier League as they finished the competition in a 7th position and secured the Europa League group stage place.
Wolves also reached the FA Cup semi-final, but after losing 3-2 against Watford, they knocked out from the tournament. English club already signed Raul Jimenez from Benfica, Leander Dendocker from Anderlecht and Jonny Castro from Atletico Madrid this summer.
