Marseille president Jacques-Henri Eyraud has confirmed he is interested in signing Chelsea striker Diego Costa.
“I like his character, his grit and his sense of combat,” Eyraud told French media outlet SFR Sport.
“He (Costa) would fit in very well at OM. However, he has a complicated contractual situation.
“If a player ticks all the boxes, then we showed that we were able to do the transactions. Why not? But it [the deal] must at least meet certain conditions.
“Nothing is impossible. I assure nothing [to the fans] for the end of the market. It is a sensitive subject.
“But one thing is certain – we are actively searching for a striker.”
