Chinese side Tianjin Quanjian are reportedly interested in signing Chelsea striker Diego Costa this January for a fee of £80 million.

Diego Costa would be offered wages of around £570,000 per week to leave Chelsea which is more than three times what he currently earns at Chelsea (£150,000).

Everton player Yannick Bolasie thinks Costa would find it difficult to turn down the money being offered from China.

“It’s frightening the way the Chinese market is acting right now,” Bolasie told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“If I’m going to put myself in Costa’s shoes, it’d be like ‘I’ve come from Brazil, I’ve been around Europe and I’m at Chelsea now, and I’ve got this Chinese team offering me this. From the favelas to something this, it’s incredible.

“I don’t think he’d think twice.

“It’s not like he’s English. He’s just thinking, What’s best for my family goes’, and it looks like on that side it’s going to be the money to be honest.”
