Chelsea striker Diego Costa emerges as transfer target for Barcelona

Posted by

Unsettled Chelsea striker Diego Costa is said to be a transfer target for Spanish giants Barcelona, according to the Daily Express.

The Spaniard joined The Blues in the summer of 2014, and was a key component of their league and cup winning side of last season, but has often courted controversy for his frequent on field antics (via Express).

Chelsea have suffered with a difficult start to the current season, and The Express is now claiming that reports in Spain are suggesting that his future could lie away from Stamford Bridge.

According to Don Balon, Barcelona coach Luis Enrique is a big fan of Costa due to his ability to “war” with defenders.

The report states that Enrique is convinced that Costa would be the perfect addition to his already mind blowing attacking line of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez.

Barcelona are currently slapped with a transfer embargo, but will be allowed to sign players once again in January.
