Premier League champions Chelsea have endured a difficult campaign thus far, with the blame often placed upon the plummet of striker Diego Costa.

The Spaniard has failed to replicate the deadly form that steered his side domestic success last season and, as a result, rumours are fast circulating of a move away from Stamford Bridge.

And according to the Mirror, David Luiz has urged Costa to join him at Paris Saint-Germain.

The Brazilian centre-back believes he has all the required qualities to be a success at the Parc des Princes.

He said: "Diego is one of the most clinical strikers in Europe, he would be a welcome addition to any team.

"I think PSG have made their intent clear over the last three or four seasons, that we only add the best player."

Costa has been frequently linked with a return to the Spanish capital with Atletico Madrid, though any move could now be quelled given the club's impending transfer ban.

Since his arrival in west London, the Spain international has often found himself at the centre of controversy - something Luiz can relate to.

"Diego and myself have had our clashes on the field, but you must understand there are two Diego’s," he said.

"On the field he is physical, he is confrontational, he will get in your face, that is part of his game.

"Off the field he is a good friend, one of the nicest guys you can meet, somebody I would go to dinner with."

The duo are set to face each other once again when Chelsea and PSG meet next month in the Champions League knockout stages, which will be their third consecutive meeting in the tournament.
