Diego Costa has been one of the most outspoken forwards in recent times. From winning the Premier League title to publicly falling out with his manager, the Chelsea man has done it all. With the World Cup just around the corner, a new club would enhance his chances of cementing a regular place in the Spanish National Team. As such, signing a striker who could guarantee 20 goals every season, would be a dream signing for any team.
Let’s have a look at teams Diego Costa must consider joining.
Losing a striker who has scored 87 goals in 166 matches is tough for any team, and when the striker is Romelu Lukaku, it is a big problem. Everton have done well by signing players like Rooney, Ramirez etc. But, none of them can have the same impact as Lukaku.
Ronald Koeman has already mentioned that Diego Costa is ‘welcome’ at Everton. As already seen, Diego Costa is a fragile player who demands love and affection of a manager. A player-manager like Koeman can improve both the game and morale of the Chelsea man. This could increase Costa’s chances of being a regular starter in the National Team, ahead of his current Chelsea teammate, Alvaro Morata.
Not all the strikers can claim to replace the physicality Lukaku uses to get around defenders. But, in a player like Costa, Everton can get a like-for-like replacement for Lukaku. Signing a superstar like Costa can increase the reputation of a European football chasing team like Everton.
