Diego Costa set to return to Premier League

According to several English media, Diego Costa (33), former Chelsea striker, will commit to Wolverhampton. He has been free since the end of his contract at Atlético Mineiro last January.

Diego Costa (33) will resume service. The Brazilian striker is expected at the Wolverhampton side this week. If Sky Sports indicates that he will be tested for potential recruitment, The Athletic ensures, for its part, that he will go directly to his medical examination. If it goes well, the former Chelsea striker will join the Premier League club as a free player. He has been without a contract since the end of his adventure in Brazil with Atlético Mineiro last January. Be nine without playing.

Wolves went in search of reinforcement after the injury of Sasa Kalajdzic (25), victim of a rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament of the left knee. The Austrian was recruited on the last day of the transfer window against more than 17 million euros from Stuttgart. He was injured three days later in his first Premier League match in the victory against Southampton (1-0).

Costa could therefore replace him if he passes the medical tests. He would then return to England four and a half years after the end of his very rich adventure with Chelsea between 2014 and January 2018. The Spanish international (24 caps, 10 goals) played 120 games and scored 59 goals with the Blues in all competitions combined by winning three titles (two Premier League in 2015 and 2017 and a League Cup). Above all, he left the image of a player starved, catchy and crafty, endowed with an excellent sense of goal.

After leaving England, he found Atlético de Madrid (2018-2021), the other club where he revealed himself before returning to Brazil, his native country, for a six-month freelance with the Atletico Mineiro.
