Chelsea close in on Atletico Madrid's Costa

Chelsea have reportedly agreed a fee for Atletico Madrid star Diego Costa.

Various reports suggest that the Blues have settled on a £32million fee for the Brazilian-born Spanish striker who has scored 35 goals for Los Rojiblancos this season.

Costa has been linked with Chelsea for much of the second half of the season as Jose Mourinho continues his search for a quality goalscorer for next campaign and beyond.

Mourinho is set to offload one or more of current strike trio Fernando Torres, Samuel Eto'o and Demba Ba this summer in order to make room for Costa who has been one of the keys in Atleti's brilliant campaign which sees them on top of the Spanish league table and in the final of the UEFA Champions League.
