Wenger willing for Arsenal to meet Diego Costa buyout clause

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is making Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa his priority January target.

The Daily Star says Costa, 25, has a £32m buyout clause in his Atletico Madrid contract and it would be a huge investment for the north Londoners following the £42.5m purchase of Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid in the summer.

But Wenger needs a new striker signing with Nicklas Bendtner out for six weeks and Olivier Giroud also missing - both with ankle injuries.

Chelsea are also keen on Costa, and were planning to make their move in the summer.

Blues boss Jose Mourinho maintains he will not sign a striker during this transfer window.
