Former Chelsea striker Diego Costa could be set to make a return to the Premier League, two years after leaving Chelsea for Atletico Madrid.
Costa was a beast for Chelsea and helped the club win two Premier League trophies with an amazing contribution upfront.
Costa won two Premier League titles during his three year spell at Stamford Bridge, before leaving the club in 2017 after failing out with then boss Antonio Conte.
According to Daily Mail, Everton owner Farhad Moshiri wants to sign the former Chelsea striker for the Toffees as his relationship with Atletico Madrid has broken down in recent months with the Spanish club reportedly unhappy with his poor discipline on the pitch.
It’ll really be weird for Chelsea players and fans to come up against Costa. Costa was a tough and aggressive player for Chelsea, and he was hated by opposition defenders. Even against the toughest of defences, Costa knew how to bully his way through, and Chelsea have never really been able to replace the Spain international since he left the club.
Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma was in awe of Costa’s style of play and mistakenly called him a cheat after a victory over Arsenal where the former Chelsea striker was in bullish form.
Zouma said: “Everyone knows Diego and this guy likes to cheat a lot and put the opponents out of his game, and that happened in the game.”
Afterwards, Zouma took to Twitter to offer his apologies for apparent misunderstanding: “Sorry for any confusion. English is not my first language and I did not mean to accuse anyone of cheating. Simply to say Diego is a player who puts pressure on his opponents and who I have huge respect for.”
