Everton are reportedly interested in bringing former Chelsea striker Diego Costa back to the Premier League from Atletico Madrid.

Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa has reportedly become a transfer target for Premier League outfit Everton.

The 30-year-old former Chelsea man appears to be set to leave the Wanda Metropolitano after an 18-month spell which has seen him net 11 goals in 42 appearances.

Costa ended last season prematurely after picking up an eight-match ban for insulting a referee.

With the Spanish club signing Joao Felix from Benfica and securing a permanent deal for Alvaro Morata, a report in The Sun suggests that a return to England could be on the cards for the forward, with Everton showing a keen interest.

Toffees boss Marco Silva has added Andre Gomes to his squad from Barcelona as he looks to strengthen his squad ahead of the 2019-20 campaign.

The report suggests that Atletico would be willing to accept a fee lower than the £57m which they paid Chelsea for his services in January 2018.
