Diego Costa 'would love to return to the Premier League and is waiting for a call' as Wolves eye free transfer

DIEGO COSTA would reportedly 'love' to return to the Premier League with Wolves eyeing a free transfer.

The Spain striker is a free agent after Atletico Madrid terminated his contract with immediate effect – six months ahead of schedule.

SunSport exclusively revealed the Midlands club are planning a shock move for the 32-year-old this month.

Wolves' main striker Raul Jimenez is out long-term after he fractured his skull against Arsenal.

And Nuno Espirito's side fancy the former Chelsea ace as a replacement.

Wolves will be boosted by the news the Spain international would 'love' to comeback to England, according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano.

He told Sky Sports News: "Costa would love to return to the Premier League.

"He had some bids from Brazilian and Turkish clubs since he ended his contract with Atletico Madrid but he decided to wait a bit.

"He hopes to receive some bids from the Premier League. There are a lot of rumours but nothing advanced.

"But for sure, Diego is waiting for a call from the Premier League. He would love to come back, he loves the atmosphere. Let's see.

"It will be interesting to have this kind of striker available as a free agent right now."

Nuno has been forced to rely on 18-year-old Fabio Silva to lead his attack, well ahead of schedule and would welcome an experienced frontman to take some of the weight off his young shoulders.

Costa certainly has all the credentials after earning legendary status at Chelsea where he won two Premier League titles.

Bookmakers swiftly installed the Molineux club as 6/4 favourites to land the Brazilian born hitman, with Arsenal just behind them at 3/1.

However Wolves have been linked with Costa for the past two seasons and Nuno has so far resisted the temptation to move for the combative striker, despite their links with super-agent Jorge Mendes who represents Costa.
