Liverpool are waiting on Atletico Madrid to respond to their offer for Diego Costa.

Liverpool have submitted a £21.8million bid for Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa.

The offer has triggered the Brazil international's 25million Euros release clause and the Reds are now awaiting a response from the Spanish outfit.

Atletico coach Diego Simeone has admitted he could lose Costa this summer and the Reds are confident he would jump at the chance to make the move to Anfield to play alongside fellow countrymen Lucas Leiva and Philippe Coutinho.
