Diego Costa Joins Wolves


Aged striker Diego Costa is rumored to be undergoing a trial soon and has opened up the opportunity to join English Premier League club Wolverhampton Wanderers (Wolves), this month.

Quoted from Sky Sports, Monday (5/9), Wolves decided to give Costa a trial opportunity because their new striker, Sasa Kalajdzic, suffered an ACL injury last weekend.

If they can impress coach Bruno Lage, Wolves will move quickly to recruit Costa. Moreover, the Spanish player is a free transfer so that he can be brought in outside the transfer market.

Previously, Wolves were looking for a new striker and towards the close of the transfer market they got Sasa Kalajdzic from Stuttgart for a transfer fee of 15.5 million pounds sterling or around IDR 265 billion plus add-ons.

Even so, in a club statement on Sunday (4/9), the Austrian striker suffered a long injury after making his debut in Wolves’ 1-0 win over Southampton.

Apart from Kalajdzic, Wolves also lost another striker Raul Jimenez, who had to suffer another injury in the warm-up session before the game against Southampton.

This condition certainly makes Wolves provide a trial opportunity for Diego Costa, who is known to have no club since being released by Atletico Mineiro, last January.

The 33-year-old player is known to have played in the English Premier League, specifically with Chelsea, from 2014 to 2018, and recorded 120 appearances with a contribution of 59 goals from 9,784 minutes played.

In addition to defending Chelsea, Costa has also defended several clubs in Europe such as Atletico Madrid, Real Valladolid, Celta Vigo, Rayo Vallecano and several other clubs in Spain and Portugal. (Ant/OL-1)
