Spain striker Diego Costa has passed a medical at Chelsea ahead of a proposed £32m transfer from Atletico Madrid, reports BBC Sport. The Blues met the buyout clause in the 25-year-old's contract with Atletico and he will now negotiate personal terms.

Costa scored 36 goals in 52 games for Atletico this season as they won their first La Liga title since 1996 and reached the Champions League final.
