Fans of Tottenham Hotspur have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which relayed a report that claimed Spurs have made out of contract striker, Diego Costa, their priority signing ahead of the January window.
According to the report by Spanish publication La Razon, Costa – who cancelled his Atletico Madrid contract by mutual consent on Tuesday – is wanted by the likes of Spurs, Everton, Napoli and Fenerbahce, with Jose Mourinho being said to have made a reunion with the 32-year-old – whom he signed for Chelsea back in 2014 – a priority in the January transfer window.
The £9 million-rated centre-forward had found game time hard to come by under Diego Simeone at the Wanda Metropolitano this season, with the Spain international starting just two games in La Liga following the summer arrivals of Luis Suarez from Barcelona and Alvaro Morata from Chelsea.
However, now that the former Chelsea man is available on a free transfer in January, it seems as if a number of clubs are keen on acquiring his services, including Mourinho’s side.
Do you think Diego Costa would be a good signing for Spurs?
And, after Last Word On Spurs relayed La Razon’s report on Twitter, fans of Tottenham flocked to have their say on whether or not they were behind the idea of their club making a move for the striker, with many appearing to have objections to the transfer.
So, what exactly did these Tottenham Hotspur fans have to say in reaction to their club’s link with Diego Costa?
“No way. If we have money to pay him what he would demand, go out & get a creative midfielder & play a more attacking style & the goals will come.”
“A broken down red card waiting to happen. Great!”
“Jose just loves old players”
“another liability to add to the ranks”
“Wait that’s not Sabitzer”
All in all, it would appear that the vast majority of these Tottenham fans would be against their club making a move for Costa, with some stating their belief that the player is a liability, while others simply passed on the idea of the transfer.
