Kevin Phillips believes that Leeds United should look into signing experienced veteran Diego Costa, who is currently a free agent.
What Phillips had to say about Costa
Speaking about Diego Costa via Football Insider, Phillips said: “They might need someone like Diego Costa, he might be looking at Leeds and thinking: ‘Look at the way they play football, I could score goals in there’.
“I know he’s been linked with Wolves but he’s a free agent, isn’t he, so it would not surprise me with Bielsa if he pitched up at Leeds.”
Would this be a good signing?
Costa has had a successful career as a whole, having scored 181 goals throughout his career, including 58 goals for Premier League side Chelsea (Transfermarkt).
Antonio Conte has been full of praise for the 6 foot 1 beast in the past, saying: “He must continue to work in this way with great desire and work-rate and I’m sure he can score in every game.”
Leeds meanwhile have already got Patrick Bamford and Rodrigo, with the former having a great campaign as he has scored ten goals in the division (WhoScored).
Costa could be an excellent experienced option to offer something a little different to Bamford, particularly as the fixtures stack up in the second half of the season and rotation is required.
