Roma plan bid for Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa

Roma are eyeing Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa for the summer market.

Sport says in Italy various media outlets say that Paulo Fonseca's side want the Atletico Madrid striker to help their title bid next season.

Edin Dzeko is 34, and their top scorer with 12 goals. The other striker is Nikola Kalinic, on loan from Atletico this season, but the Croatian's performance has not been good - only being used for 249 minutes.

Atletico are willing to listen to offers. Roma were interested back in 2013 but he stayed at Atletico, won the title and later went to Chelsea.

He thrived there until clashing with Antonio Conte and was frozen out then sold back.
