We are now just one day away from the madness that is the January transfer window.
Of course, the Wolves spent a lot in the summer on the likes of Nelson Semedo and Fabio Silva, so it remains to be seen how much money is left in the bank for Jeff Shi and company to spend.
Which is the word?
The wolves have one main goal in January: sign a new striker.
With Raúl Jiménez still recovering from a skull fracture he suffered against Arsenal, they are light in a central attacking zone and therefore need to sign some coverage.
According to Sun., that’s former Chelsea striker Diego Costa. They report that the Wolves are contemplating a move by the Spaniard who has just been released from his contract with Atlético de Madrid.
Should the Wolves sign Diego Costa?
That means Shi could get the seasoned forward a free transfer if the Wolves can agree to the terms of the contract in January.
Costa could join immediately, rather than next summer as originally anticipated.
Forget about Jovic
Jovic has immense potential, but in terms of finding someone in the short term, surely there will be no one better than Costa.
He is a very powerful forward and has a proven track record of scoring goals at the elite level and crucially in the Premier League.
International 24 times with Spain, Costa has found the back of the net in 52 times in just 89 Premier League games. It’s a fabulous record, one that earned him the Title of an “animal” according to José Mourinho.
If any word typified the Brazilian-born attacker, that would be it.
His natural aggression is incredibly conspicuous and even though he’s 32 now, he’d still make an exceptional addition, especially on a free transfer.
Costa is a colossal battering ram and would add a lot to this rather young Lobos team. Your availability has come at a perfect time for Old Gold.
This would be an excellent start to the new year.
