Italian football journalist Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Diego Costa would relish a return to the Premier League.
The striker mutually agreed with Atletico Madrid for his contract, which was due to expire in June to be terminated early due to personal reasons (Sky Sports).
Costa previously enjoyed success in England having scored 58 goals in 120 appearances in all competitions for Chelsea (transfermarkt).
Tottenham Hotspur have previously been linked with a move for the 32-year-old with Mundo Deportivo reporting towards the end of last month that Costa could be reunited with Jose Mourinho in North London.
Romano revealed that Costa has received offers from Brazil and Turkey the day after he terminated his contract with Atletico but has instead decided to wait to see what other offers arise.
The journalist also played down Wolverhampton Wanderers’ rumoured interest in the Spanish international by insisting that there is nothing concrete at the moment to suggest he could make a move to Molineux.

He told Sky Sports: “Diego Costa would love to return to the Premier League. He had some bids from Brazilian and Turkish clubs the day after he ended his contract with Atletico Madrid but decided to wait a bit. He is in no rush.
“He hopes to receive some bids from the Premier League. At the moment I don’t have anything confirmed about Wolves. There are a lot of rumours but nothing advanced.
“But for sure, Diego is waiting for a call from the Premier League. He would love to come back, he loves the atmosphere. Let’s see. It will be interesting to have this kind of striker available as a free agent right now.”
