Ex-Chelsea striker Diego Costa ‘open’ to shock transfer to Tottenham from Atletico Madrid to reunite with Mourinho

DIEGO COSTA is reportedly “open” to joining Tottenham to reunite with Jose Mourinho.

Atletico Madrid want to sell the 31-year-old after a disappointing season saw him score just five times.

According to the Daily Star, Tottenham have been offered the chance to sign Costa.

But the North London club have concerns over the striker’s age and fitness levels.

The source states that Costa is “open” to joining Spurs as he looks to revive his career.

Costa won the Premier League title while playing under the management of Mourinho at Chelsea.

He then made the £57million move to Atletico Madrid in 2017.

Mourinho is keen to sign another striker to strengthen his squad this summer.

SunSport exclusively revealed in July that Spurs were keeping a close eye on Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson.

But Costa would be the cheaper option as his deal at Atletico is set to expire next summer.

The Spaniard – who was sentenced to six months in prison for tax offences – has also attracted interest from LaLiga side Benfica.
