HE'S BACK: Diego Costa set on Premier League RETURN
The Brazilian-born Spanish striker could be back in the English top flight with this team
The transfer deadline day may have come and go, but not even that is stopping Premier League sides from reinforcing their squads for the ongoing season. Ones that haven't had a great start are Wolverhampton Wanderers; the Wolves have just won one of their initial six league commitments and they are the the bottom half of the table. However, now they surely are hoping to have found the signing that will take them into European places contention once again: Diego Costa.
The Brazilian-born striker recently ended his link with Atletico Mineiro in his birth country, failing to adapt to life in South America after so many years Europe. Early reports linked him with a move to Rayo Vallecano, as it was said the striker wanted to remain living in Madrid. However, things have turned and now Costa is set to have his medical examinations later this week; should no issues be found, he'll be signing with Wolverhampton.
This is certainly a move that wasn't originally in the agenda for the Molineux side. Wolves are looking for a replacement after their new striker Sasa Kalajdzic sustained an anterior cruciate ligament injury against Southampton.
Needing an experienced striker to help Raul Gimenez carry the weight of their attack, Costa is the perfect man having spent three seasons in the Premier League with Chelsea, winning the title in 2015 and 2017 and scoring 59 goals in 120 games.
It is expected that Diego Costa's contract will be for just one year, ending in June 2023, although there are no wages figures yet to be reported. As reported per various sources, after the medical examinations the Spanish international is expected to make his final decision whether or not to join Wolverhampton Wanderers.
