Many Wolves fans have been discussing an update that Fabrizio Romano has provided about the club’s links with Diego Costa.
Romano was recently talking to Sky Sports about Costa’s situation and he declared that the striker wants a return to the Premier League, following his exit from Atletico Madrid. The journalist revealed that Costa is currently ‘hoping’ for an offer from the Premier League but he also couldn’t confirm any interest from Wolves for the former Chelsea man.
Should Wolves avoid signing Costa?
Journalist Ekrem Konur had recently reported that Wolves had asked about the possibility of signing the former Atletico Madrid forward, who earned as much as £270,000-a-week in his most recent contract with the Los Rojiblancos.
Costa had won the Premier League twice with Chelsea during his time in England. In the past, he also won a single La Liga title with Atletico Madrid. At Chelsea, he scored 58 goals and picked up 24 assists for the Blues.
Back in 2018, Diego Simeone had praised the striker and said: “This was his best game since he came back with us, he’s a beast, he was running all the time, putting pressure on the opponent, breaking his mark.”
With Raul Jimenez currently out injured, Wolves have only Fabio Silva as their senior out-and-out striker option. The Portuguese youngster though, is yet to score even once from open play in the campaign, making Wolves’ need for a striker a rather urgent one.
The update from Romano was relayed on Twitter by Talking Wolves recently and many fans made their opinion clear about it.
What did Wolves fans make of this update about Diego Costa?
“Am I only one that dont want costa at our club lol”
“I think we should give it a go, we desperately need a big name now, we can’t just be seen as a feeder club to the big 6 like Southampton for example”
“Get him in. Will ruffle a few feathers. He is sure to get on the end of the endless number of crosses we make. Free transfer, pay him 100k a week for 6 month. Hopefully raul will be fit for next season. make a decision in summer whether or not to keep him.”
“Diego Costa will have known which club he was moving to before his contract was terminated. He’s wages won’t be cheap mind. Our league position won’t help matters either.”
“Get it done before we loose out”
“We best get him”
