Costa’s contract at Atletico Madrid was initially due to run until the end of the season but the La Liga club agreed to terminate his deal back in December.
However, it was also suggested that the former Chelsea man was demanding a salary of more than £250,000-a-week to sign on the dotted line.
Il Messaggero now claims that Costa’s agent, Jorge Mendes is working hard to find a new club for the striker.
Among the clubs that Mendes is said to have offered Costa to is Tottenham, as well as their London rivals West Ham.
However, the report does not clarify whether Spurs have expressed interest in signing the striker.
