Chelsea are reportedly preparing a January swoop for Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa.

Chelsea are reportedly readying an offer for Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa.

The forward has been in fine form in recent weeks, topping La Liga's scoring charts with 10 goals so far this season, as well as adding a brace to his overall tally in Tuesday's 3-0 win against Austria Vienna in the Champions League.

Blues boss Jose Mourinho is said to be looking to add a big-name striker to his squad, and Costa fits the bill, according to The Mirror.

However, Atleti are said to be looking to for around £35m for the hitman, who could represent Spain at next summer's World Cup, despite playing two friendlies for Brazil.
