Chelsea are keen on improving their goalkeeping department with the signing of the Porto goalkeeper Diogo Costa.

The 24-year-old Portuguese international has done quite well for the Portuguese club and his performances have attracted the attention of Manchester City as well. According to journalist Rudy Galetti, the player has already been approached by Chelsea and it remains to be seen whether the Blues follow up with an official offer to sign him.

The 24-year-old could prove to be a quality acquisition for Chelsea, and he could be an upgrade on Robert Sanchez. The Spanish goalkeeper joined Chelsea at the start of the season, but his performances have been rather underwhelming.

Chelsea are looking to replace him during the summer transfer window and Costa has been identified as a potential target. The opportunity to move to the Premier League will be quite attractive for the Portuguese goalkeeper and he is likely to be tempted to join Chelsea.

Man City keen on Diogo Costa

Meanwhile, Manchester City will be an attractive destination for the player as well. Ederson has been linked with a potential move away from the Premier League champions and they will have to bring in a quality replacement. It remains to be seen whether they can beat Chelsea to the signature of Costa in the coming weeks.

The 24-year-old has proven his quality in the Portuguese league and he will look to take on a new challenge at this stage of his career. A move to Chelsea or Manchester City will be an attractive opportunity for him.

It remains to be seen where he ends up. Both clubs have the financial resources to get the deal done and Costa could be a quality long-term acquisition for them. The goalkeeper is still only 24 and he is likely to improve with coaching and experience.
