The Spanish newspaper claims that Atletico are already preparing for the departure of their top scorer Costa, and have subsequently lined up Tottenham's misfiring forward Roberto Soldado as their first-choice replacement.

Sport claim that Serie A outfit Napoli are also keen on Brazilian-born Costa, who will represent Spain at the World Cup finals this summer, but the striker is expected to join an English club.

Chelsea have been strongly linked with the 25-year-old in recent weeks, with some reports even claiming that the Blues are prepared to offload their potentially world-class Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois in order to bring Costa to Stamford Bridge.

Manchester United, meanwhile, will consider Costa if either Robin van Persie or Javier Hernandez leave Old Trafford this summer.

And Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is in the market for another top-class striker to accompany Olivier Giroud.
