Diego Costa is available on a free transfer after terminating his contract with Atletico Mineiro. D. Costa only joined Atletico Mineiro last year but could be ready for a surprise return to Europe. He wrote on Instagram: “Today, officially, I say goodbye to Atletico.
The striker has held several talks with many clubs – including with Arsenal, Cadiz, Corinthians and Sao Paolo. All of them are considered to be in the race to sign the Spanish international.
Big move to Arsenal?
Costa loved scoring against the Gunners during his Premier League career with Chelsea, with a record of six goals and 5 victories in 6 matches against Arsenal.
The star left the Blues with an stunning record of 58 goals in 120 appearances in Premier League over 3 seasons at Stamford Bridge, where he also won the title two times.
He continued to haunt the Gunners with Atletico Madrid, we remember he scored the conclusive goal that kicked Arsene Wenger’s team out of the Europa League semi-finals in 2018.
