Tottenham Hotspur: Jose Mourinho ‘very keen’ on Diego Costa - Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

Jose Mourinho is still ‘very keen’ to sign Diego Costa for Tottenham Hotspur, according to Calcio Mercato (via Last Word On Spurs).

However, as recently reported by the Italian news outlet, the Lilywhites will have to race Wolves as well as Al-Hilal and Al-Shabab Riyad to secure his signature.

Costa could be the ideal back-up to Kane

With Carlos Vinicius only on a loan deal from Benfica, the North London club may think twice about making his move into a permanent one if they can get Costa on a free transfer instead.

Should Spurs sign Costa?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Previously described as a ‘beast’ by his old Atletico Madrid boss in Diego Simeone, the 32 year-old could certainly provide a decent alternative option to Harry Kane with his physical presence if THFC find themselves chasing the game and therefore are looking to go a bit more direct.

The striker also has the added experience and knowledge of playing in the Premier League before with Chelsea, in where he scored a very impressive 52 goals and made a further 18 assists in 89 games over three consecutive terms at Stamford Bridge (Transfermarkt).

If they can negotiate a satisfactory wage for the Spanish talisman, then it could be a very good deal for Spurs to land him on a free transfer, and thus reunite him with his old coach in Mourinho.
