Arsenal urged to sign Costa

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger flexed his financial muscle in the summer transfer window with the acquisition of Mesut Özil for a club record fee and, as January approaches, the Frenchman is expected to perform a similar coup.

Following the signing of Özil at cost of £42.5 million the Gunners are now credited with interest in players that had previously appeared to be beyond their price range, and Diego Costa is a player to represent precisely that at present.

Costa has scored 19 goals in 17 La Liga appearances for Atletico Madrid this season and, given their lack of depth up front, Arsenal are being linked with a £32 million bid for the striker.

Olivier Giroud has started all but one of Arsenal's matches in the Premier League this term and the recruitment of another proven centre-forward would appear to be something of a priority for Wenger.

Costa would undoubtedly fulfil that criteria and, if Arsenal Fan TV is anything to go by, the soon to be Spain international would be a popular signing among Gunners.
