Whilst the Diego Costa saga is carrying on, the Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are already thinking about who might come in to replace him, should he leave…
The Spanish forward has been a vital part of Chelsea’s impressive start to the 2016/17 season – but it could be all about to be crashing down.
Diego Costa is reportedly ready to leave the club after an offer from China, and whilst Antonio Conte is likely hopeful of hanging on to him – the Spaniard’s future certainly hangs in the balance.
Whilst any deal to take him away from Stamford Bridge is yet to come to fruition, it would appear as though Antonio Conte isn’t taking any chances – with the Evening Standard reporting that the Italian is lining up a summer move for Alvaro Morata – who would likely be seen as a replacement for Costa.
It would certainly require a huge move, given how highly-rated Morata is at Madrid – but if Conte can get the deal done, he will be able to build quite a remarkable strike force.
With that said, is this the potential new-look Chelsea frontline including Alvaro Morata?
