Barcelona eye swoop for another Chelsea star

Chelsea v Liverpool - Capital One Cup Semi Final Second LegChelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are growing increasingly concerned at the rumours concerning exits from their club, as another of their stars has emerged as a target for Barcelona.

The Daily Express claim Barcelona are eying Chelsea striker Diego Costa as they look to bolster their attacking options, with Lionel Messi currently sidelined through injury.

27-year-old Costa has been linked with a return to Spain despite enjoying an incredible debut season in West London, with claims that the experienced striker is homesick and misses his friends on the continent.

Barcelona boss Luis Enrique is a big fan of Costa, especially his ability to go to ‘war’ with defenders, and believes bringing the striker to Catalonia will improve his attacking trio of Luis Suarez, Messi and Neymar.

Chelsea, understandably, will not be keen on selling but could have the situation taken out of their hands at the end of the season if they miss out on Champions League football.

The odds are currently stacked against them, with no side finishing in the top four in Premier League history after picking-up less than 13 points from their opening ten league matches.

Chelsea fans, would selling Diego Costa be a big mistake? Let us know in the comments below!
