The Daily Mirror have a shocking claim for us here in the Football Transfer Tavern, as they note that Diego Costa has unsurprisingly managed to get himself another suitor.
The Brazilian-born forward is already hot property after an epic season in La Liga for Atletico Madrid and has not only earned himself a call up to the Spanish national squad this summer, but also managed to get the likes of Chelsea chasing after his signature.
Now it seems that another London club are keen on the forward with Tottenham Hotspur considering a move for the player after losing faith with the misfiring Roberto Soldado.
As one of our punters questions why Costa would leave high flying Atleti for Spurs, our landlord notes that Chelsea are still the most likely destination, yet the Blues have a few striking targets that they are monitoring.
Should Jose Mourinho manage to prise Radamel Falcao away from his tax free haven that is Monaco, Costa would of course be surplus to requirements, leaving the rest of the chasing pack with some hope.
Surely Tottenham are massive outsiders to land Costa? What do you think? Let us know your thoughts below.
