Stamford Bridge side linked with the Vicente Calderon player exchange swoop.
La Liga side Atletico Madrid are ready to offer goal machine Diego Costa as they look to secure Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois on a permanent basis according to the Daily Mirror.
The Stamford Bridge side could well be tempted to agree such a deal given that the 21 year old Belgian custodian has spent the past three seasons on loan at Atletico Madrid with Jose Mourinho seemingly happy to continue with Petr Cech as his first choice starter.
Chelsea badly need a prolific forward to lead the Blues attack with the likes of Fernando Torres, Demba Ba and Samuel Eto’o all failing to score regularly in Premier League action.
Moves to bring in a forward are such that the sacrifice of losing Courois, a hugely talented goalkeeper, would be one that Mourinho would be willing to make but one does wonder if Diego Simeone would be keen to leave a striker of Costa’s pedigree.
The 25 year old Brazilian born striker has scored a phenomenal 19 goals in 17 La Liga fixtures but could perhaps be ready to consider a fresh challenge at Chelsea, where no doubt he could earn a big pay rise.
