Stamford Bridge side look to bring in Atletico Madrid ace.


Chelsea are ready to trigger Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa’s release clause according to Spanish source Sport.es.


Stamford Bridge boss Jose Mourinho is looking to bring in a prolific forward to lead his attack and is ready to fork out the €38m (£31m) it would take to land the 25 year old, who has been called up by Spain for their upcoming friendly with Italy.

Costa has been in fine form this term, scoring 21 La Liga goals and forming an excellent partnership with experienced striker David Villa, who is enjoying a new lease of life since moving from Barcelona to the Vicente Calderon.
