Atletico Madrid’s Diego Costa is the latest striker to be linked to a move to Arsenal. According to the reports coming from Brazil, the high rated Brazilian may be on his way to Arsenal in January as Wenger tries to brief up his porous attack. Diego Costa was reportedly on his way to Liverpool in the last transfer window but nothing came out of the rumours as the player chose to remain with current club Atletico Madrid.
Having been frustrated in the last transfer window, Wenger who failed to sign a striker in the just concluded window has reportedly told Arsenal scouts to keep a close tab on Diego Costa with the intention of moving for the Brazilian international.
However, Arsenal will not have it easy to sign the player as Liverpool are also said to be interested in signing him after failing in their own attempt to sign him in the just concluded summer window. Aletico are reportedly ready to sell the player should a bid of at least 30 million pounds arrives for his services.
Arsenal currently have Giroud as the only experience centre forward.
