Wolves are looking at the potential signing of Diego Costa, as the former Chelsea man was released from his contract with Atletico Madrid yesterday.
The Daily Mail claims Wolves are eyeing Costa as a potential replacement for Raul Jimenez, who is expected to miss a prolonged period after his serious head injury.
Costa, 32, is a two-time Premier League winning striker while he’s also helped himself to a La Liga title and more while in Spain.
With Jimenez out, Wolves are reliant on young striker, Fabio Silva, while against Manchester United last night, Nuno Santo went with the trio of Vitinha, Neto, and Traore up top.
The experienced Costa could well be a decent option for the Molineux oufit. Like Jimenez, Costa is used to playing as the focal point in attack and has little problem with being a battering ram type forward.

On paper, it would appear so. Costa has all the attributes to succeed in the Premier League and he has done so before, even if the goals in recent seasons might have dried up somewhat.
Wolves do need someone in the building to replace Jimenez if they are to carry on with their good form and maintain some sort of push for the European places.
The experienced Spaniard would be ideal as a short-term option and could be just what Nuno Santo needs at this point in the season.
