Big Sam: Diego Costa will transform Everton into top 4 team

Sam Allardyce has claimed that Everton can finish in the top four of the Premier League if they are able to bring Diego Costa to the club from Atletico Madrid.

The former Chelsea striker has endured a difficult campaign in La Liga and is said to be open to a Premier League return.

Speaking about The Toffees, who sacked him last summer, Allardyce told talkSPORT: "Fourth is up for grabs – Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United

"Who is going to break in? Obviously Everton fans expect them to.

"And if they got a Costa, and they get him moving and scoring goals like he did at Chelsea, they could possibly get there."
