Atletico Madrid’s Diego Costa is the striker that Tottenham are reportedly looking at to bolster their attacking options.
The latest reports in England suggest that Tottenham are keen to land Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa.
The 32-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The Spain international joined Atletico from Chelsea for a fee in the region of 60 million euros in January 2018. His contract expires in the summer of 2021.
The striker has banged in one goal in four matches for Atletico this term on all fronts.
The 32-year-old is considered to be one of the best strikers in Spain.
As a member of Spain national football team, Costa won 24 caps and he scored 10 goals.
The Spurs are looking to sign a striker and have identified the 32-year-old as potential transfer target.
Jose Mourinho is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him next summer.
The Spain international provides a unique blend between a classic center-forward and the modern striker. Costa has the quality and the experience to make an immediate impact.
According to the report, “Costa is in the final year of his contract with Atletico Madrid, where he has scored just 18 times since returning from Chelsea in January 2018 and is ready to move on. The Spain international previously enjoyed a prolific spell in the Premier League, although he wasn’t without his controversial moments. His Chelsea career ended with 59 goals from 120 games. Jose Mourinho initially took Costa to Stamford Bridge in 2014, and according to Don Balon, the Tottenham boss is now eyeing a reunion with the striker. The Spanish outlet claims that Mourinho has identified Costa as ideal competition for Harry Kane. A deal would have to wait until next summer, though. Costa will become a free agent at the end of the season, at which time Tottenham will be one of the main contenders for his signature, claims Don Balon.”

Tottenham will have to come up with the right proposal to convince Costa to join the club.
Good signing for Tottenham?
Tottenham could benefit by signing Diego Costa as the striker is one of the areas of concern for Mourinho.
Diego Costa has all the skillset required to be a success story at Tottenham. Therefore, it makes sense for Jose Mourinho to step up his attempts to bring the Spain striker to Premier League side.
Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Tottenham.
How strong that interest is and whether Tottenham will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
