Manchester City are eyeing Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa.

After five separate loan deals, Diego Costa established himself at Atletico last season alongside Radamel Falcao and his form has attracted interest from across Europe.

Madrid media sources say City are eyeing the striker, who is under consideration as a replacement for Carlos Tevez.

Like the Argentine, Diego Costa is known for his hard-working, bustling style and knows City ace Sergio Aguero from their time together at the Vicente Calderon.
