Speaking recently on the Here We Go podcast, Fabrizio Romano discussed Wolverhampton Wanderers’ reported interest in out of contract centre-forward, Diego Costa.

After rejoining Atletico Madrid in what was a £54 million move from Chelsea back in 2018, Costa went on to make 81 appearances for the club, scoring 19 goals and providing 14 assists along the way.

To kick off this quiz on Romain Saiss, what squad number does the defensive midfielder currently wear for the Old Gold?

However, following the arrival of both Alvaro Morata and Luis Suarez in the summer transfer window, the £9 million-rated man found his game time limited at the Spanish side over the first half of the season, starting just two games in La Liga.

As a result, the 32-year-old agreed on the mutual termination of his contract with the club, leaving him free to discuss terms with any interested parties in January, one of whom was reported to be Wolves.

Wolves’ reported interest in Costa was one topic of conversation on a recent episode of the Here We Go podcast, in which Romano claimed that, while there has been no offer from the club as yet, that could still change.

He said: “Diego Costa has not received anything from Wolverhampton. He’s a free agent – as we always say, free agents are dangerous because everything can change in one day. So, everything can change but, at the moment, with Wolverhampton, there is nothing.”

Would Costa be a good signing for Wolves?

TIF Thoughts on Fabrizio Romano’s comments regarding Diego Costa…

From Romano’s comments, it would appear that there has been no contact as yet between Costa and Wolves, although, the journalist also seems to feel that this could easily change very quickly as the transfer window progresses.

However, with Wolves recently recalling Patrick Cutrone from his loan deal at ACF Fiorentina, Nuno Espirito Santo’s need for a striker following the injury to Raul Jimenez appears to be rather less urgent, which, in our opinion, could rule Wolves out of the race to land Costa this month.
