Diego Costa has asked to terminate his Atlético contract, but he wants to remain in Europe and according to ‘AS’, Arsenal are keeping a close eye on what happens with the striker.
Atlético Madrid are living with the news that Diego Costa wants to leave. The player was absent from training on Monday and asked the club for the immediate termination of his contract, alleging that he is suffering family problems.
His deal was going to expire in June, but the striker wants to leave now. The question is where? According to ‘AS’, Costa thinks he still has two or three years left in him at the top, therefore he is only considering staying in Europe.
Meanwhile, Atlético refuse to let him go to a direct La Liga rival so his future could be at a Premier League club: we are talking about Arsenal.
The aforementioned media assures that Arteta’s side are looking for a striker in January to complement Aubameyang and Lacazette, so they are closely following Diego Costa’s situation. Despite his injuries and the latest problems with the coronavirus, they still see him as able to contribute.
In addition, his arrival as a free agent is desirable and of little risk. Costa also knows London from his three seasons at Chelsea, from who he left mainly because of his bad relationship with Antonio Conte.
Thus, if this immediate termination of Diego Costa’s contract finally takes place, Arsenal await to go for the player. He will not lack suitors.
