It is a fact of life at Atletico Madrid that your best players are more than likely to eventually move on in a big-money transfer deal. Diego Costa is one of the latest stars to emerge at the Vicente Calderon and any number of Premier League club have been credited with an interest.
He is a versatile centre-forward in that he can play the role as target man for midfielders to link up play off of him and can drop deeper to play with a partner. Arsenal and Chelsea are both in desperate need of a new striker to boost their attacking threat and Costa would fit the bill perfectly.
The Brazil-born Spain international as a real eye for goal and also possesses something of vicious streak, so he is unlikely to be bothered by the rough and tumble that is often a hallmark of the high-paced Premier League matches.
