Diego Costa is reportedly keen to move back to the Premier League, amid transfer links to Wolves.

The 32-year-old has ended his second stint with Atletico Madrid early, and is now on the lookout for a new club.

Costa’s availability on a free transfer has led to plenty of speculation since, with the likes of Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Wolves all being linked.

Fabrizio Romano has told Sky Sports that Wolves aren’t in advanced talks, but that the player is keen to come back to England.

He said: “He’s hoping to receive a bid from the Premier League. I don’t have anything confirmed from Wolverhampton.

“We had a lot of rumours about Wolves for Diego Costa but there is nothing advanced at the moment. But for sure, Diego is waiting for a call from the Premier League.”

Wolves are being linked with a number of strikers at the moment of course, with Raul Jimenez recovering from a fractured skull sustained at Arsenal at the end of November.

Wolves are crying out for an experienced leader of a line.

Fabio Silva is showing promise, but it’s a big task for him to take on having only just joined the club as an 18-year-old.

Costa knows the Premier League and although he isn’t the same force as when he left Chelsea in 2017 after scoring 52 goals in the competition, he can bring the steel and fight that appears to be needed right now.
