Ex-Chelsea striker Cascarino welcomes Diego Costa deal

Former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino has welcomed the imminent signing of Diego Costa.

Diego Costa is expected to soon join Chelsea from Atletico Madrid.

"It's a great acquisition for Chelsea," Cascarino told talkSPORT. "You only have to look at the relationship between Drogba and Frank Lampard in Jose Mourinho's most successful team. You see a forward who could hold the ball up and create things. That then helps the midfielder get goals. Chelsea haven't had a relationship like that since.

"Demba Ba does it OK but he doesn't do it to the level Jose Mourinho wants. Costa will give him that."
