Wolves reportedly field former Chelsea striker Diego Costa to replace injured Raul Jimenez

The Times claim the Premier League side have their eye on the Spain striker, who became a free agent when Atletico Madrid terminated his contract with immediate effect

Costa reportedly asked to leave Atletico for family reasons, where he only had six months left on his contract

Nuno Espirito Santo is currently without star striker Jimenez, who was sidelined for a long time with a fractured skull in a sickening collision with Arsenal’s David Luiz last month

Teenage sensation Fabio Silva has filled the void in Jimenez’s absence, but Santo is in desperate need of some extra firepower

However, one of the Premier League’s top six would be foolish not to make a move for Costa, according to former Tottenham striker Darren Bent

“Especially now that his contract has been broken and you don’t have to pay any money for him,” he told talkSPORT, adding that his fitness was still good and he had lots of experience in England

“Spurs would take it, Wolves would take it, even someone like Everton if something happens to [Dominic] Calvert-Lewin,” Bent added

Betfair and Paddy Power both have it at 6/5 to move to Molineux, while he is 7/1 to join Everton and 33/1 for a reunion with Chelsea and 10/1 with Sky Bet to join Tottenham

Costa, who returned to Atleti from Chelsea in 2018, only scored 19 goals in 81 games in his second stint with Diego Simeone’s side

Dubbed a pantomime villain during his successful Premier League stint, Costa scored 52 goals in 89 games for Chelsea from 2014 to 2017 following his £ 32million transfer to Stamford Bridge and helped the club to win two league titles
