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 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 has ordered his club to look into the feasibility of signing Diego Costa as he attempts to make a ‘statement signing’ this summer.

Costa, 30, came close to signing for Everton when he left Chelsea back in 2017.

Costa’s relationship with Atletico Madrid has broken down in recent months with the Spanish club reportedly unhappy with his poor discipline on the pitch.

Back in April, Costa was handed an eight-match ban for abusing the referee during Atletico’s defeat to Barcelona and the ban means the striker will miss the opening game of next season.

Costa made 89 Premier League appearances for Chelsea, scoring 52 goals and he was adored by Chelsea fans during his time at the club.

During his time at Chelsea, Costa was one of the most feared strikers in the Premier League.
