Diego Costa

A transfer that is expected to be confirmed sooner rather than later, Chelsea are believed to have already met Costa’s release clause of £32 million. The 25 year old notched an impressive thirty five goals for the surprise La Liga champions this season.

The Brazil-born striker is anticipating a hostile reception in his native country, having taken up Spanish citizenship in the last year. Costa seems to have been plagued by hamstring troubles in recent months but if fit, the Chelsea target will undoubtedly lead the line for the reigning world champions this summer.
