Chelsea forward Diego Costa may soon be seen plying his trade away from England, with reports in Corriere dello Sport revealing that his agent Jorge Mendes has offered him to Serie A side Napoli.

The Spaniard has been linked with a potential move away from Stamford Bridge for quite a while now, with his former club Atletico Madrid and French giants Paris Saint-Germain also known to be following him closely.

 

It is believed that Napoli have grown interested in acquiring the services of the 27 year old after selling off Gonzalo Higuain to Juventus. Additionally, following the west Londoners’ acquisition of Michy Batshuayi sometime back, the Italians have grown even more optimistic about landing Costa this summer, despite them having recently already signed Arkadiusz Milik.

Meanwhile, if the aforementioned news is indeed true, it could also mean that the Blues may make desperate attempts to sign Romelu Lukaku from Everton in the days to come, despite the Toffees new boss Ronald Koeman known to be keen to hold on to him this summer.

Costa enjoyed a sensational first season at Chelsea, playing a massive role in his side’s Premier League triumph under Jose Mourinho. However, he seemed only a shadow of his former self last season, as the Blues finished a disappointing 10th in the league.

Meanwhile, practically speaking, it seems unlikely that manager Antonio Conte would let the forward leave anytime soon, going by the fact that he may still prove to be a useful offensive option for him, unless of course the side manage to sign another new forward in the days to come.
