Former Chelsea striker Diego Costa is a free agent after his Atletico Madrid contract was terminated in December.

The Brazilian-born Spanish striker is reportedly interested in a move back to the Premier League.

Former Chelsea and Arsenal defender William Gallas has urged Arsenal to sign Costa as he would add much-needed “character” to Arsenal’s squad.

Gallas told PlayOJO of Costa: “He would bring character to the squad. He just wants to win games.

“If his team-mate doesn’t play well, he will shout at them during the game and sometimes I think this is good. Sometimes, when I’m watching Arsenal, they don’t show any reaction when they concede, and someone like Costa will shout to the guys ‘Wake up!’, which can boost the players.

“If he comes to Arsenal, he will cause a lot of problems for defenders but it might also mean Alexandre Lacazette going on the bench again.”
