Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, Dean Windass hinted that Wolves should consider a move for former Chelsea striker Diego Costa.
The Spaniard had his contract with Atletico Madrid mutually terminated last month and as a result, he’s now available for clubs to sign on a free transfer.
It’s thought the Old Gold are on the hunt for a new striker with Raul Jimenez currently absent through injury and thus, Windass thinks that Costa would fit the bill at Molineux.
When asked which Premier League sides should consider a move for Costa, Windass told Football FanCast: “Wolves could [be a good] fit, obviously, with Jimenez fracturing his skull. That could be a good fit.”
Wolves signed Fabio Silva for £35.6m in the summer so any January transfer will presumably have to be done at cut-price.
Costa may cost a pretty penny in terms of his weekly salary but the club would do little wrong by acquiring him on a free transfer.
The 24-cap Spain international has already made 89 appearances in the Premier League, scoring 52 goals in the process.
His record this season isn’t so impressive, however. The 32-year-old netted twice in seven appearances for Atletico before he was allowed to end his contract in the Spanish capital.
