Chelsea sent scouts to watch Diego Costa in Atletico Madrid’s recent Champions League victory over AC Milan, according to the SportsDirectNews website
It is no secret that Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is looking to add another striker to his squad, and is seemingly destined to bring Costa to London this summer
Costa has scored 22 goals in 27 La Liga games this season, even better than the figures of former Atletico Madrid stars Radamel Falcao and Sergio Aguero.
And the blues scouts were impressed by the performance of the Brazilian-born Spaniard, as he netted twice.
Mourinho has previously criticised Fernando Torres, Samuel Eto’o and Demba Ba, saying he has “no strikers only a team” and knows adding Costa will be the icing on top of an already impressive team
