Reds targeting Atletico Madrid’s Diego Costa.
Liverpool have made a firm offer to sign Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa, according to Spanish source Punto Pelota.
The Anfield club are reportedly willing to pay the 24-year-old’s €25m release-clause and it is understood the Brazilian will make a decision on his future in the coming weeks.
Costa enjoyed a fine campaign at the Vicente Calderon last season, bagging ten La Liga goals and seven assists in 31 appearances.
The forward, who can also play behind the striker, is set to play a pivotal role for the Spanish side next season, following the departure of £50m man Radamel Falcao to Monaco.
Punto make no reference of the fact that Costa could be a replacement for Luis Suarez but the Atletico man does share many of the Uruaguayan’s qualities.
