Arsenal Strongly Considering Submitting a Bid for Diego Costa
Even though Arsenal are currently leading the Premier League and clinched a place in the UEFA Champions League’s Round of 16, the team desperately needs help upfront.
The only reliable striker the team has is Olivier Giroud, and with Nicklas Bendtner out of the picture and the rest of the attacking players being better suited for a wider role – like Theo Walcott and Santi Cazorla – The Gunners have reportedly set their sights on a striker to land as soon as January next year.
This main target is none other than Brazilian/Spanish striker Diego Costa, one of the best in the world this season that currently plays for Atletico Madrid.
It’s safe to say that the chances of Diego Costa swapping teams this year is quite slim and nearly nonexistent. Los Rojiblancos are leading La Liga together with FC Barcelona, and they are also in the second round at the European stage. Costa is the most important player on the team as he’s been able to replace Radamel Falcao with a surprising season so far.
All of those factors aren’t going to stop Arsenal from making an offer since their manager Arséne Wenger is fascinated with the growth Costa has had this year. Per reports, the Premier League outfit is thinking about offering around €32 million – the amount of his release clause – and then convincing the star striker that a change of scenery is the best for him.
It seems like a very complicated effort, but if Arsenal is able to pull it off they would have one of the best forward lines in the world pairing Costa with players like Giroud and Mesut Özil. As all things stand now, however, it remains a distant possibility.
