Already with one of the world’s most dangerous attacks, Atletico Madrid is prepared to add another dimension into the mix.
While the Blues have maintained their position that Costa isn’t for sale, Atletico looks to boost its already strong offense with the 27-year-old Spaniard. Diego Simeone’s group already features talented attacking duo Antoine Griezmann and Fernando Torres.
During his previous stint in La Liga, Costa netted 56 goals across all competitions in two seasons with the Rojiblancos.
Chelsea is reportedly pursuing former striker Romelu Lukaku after signing Belgian Michy Batshuayi this summer. Antonio Conte’s side also features young forward Bertrand Traore, who has made a strong impression during the preseason.Follow @MattReedFutbol
