Fenerbahce are eyeing a swoop for Diego Costa, with the Turkish giants reported to have opened talks with Chelsea over a loan deal for the striker.
Costa was deemed surplus to requirement by Blues’ boss Antonio Conte, and remains in his homeland of Brazil after failing to move away from Stamford Bridge before the end of transfer deadline day.
However, unlike most of Europe, Turkey’s transfer window doesn’t ‘slam shut’ until Friday, leaving Fenerbahce time to sort out a deal for the 28-year-old Chelsea outcast.
Costa had wanted to return to former club Atletico Madrid however, the club were scuppered by a transfer embargo, leaving the Spanish international to sulk back in Brazil.
Having been left out of Chelsea’s Champions League squad, there looks to be no chance of return to west London for Costa.
However, while there’s no guarantee that a deal with Fenerbahce will materialise, surely a move to Turkey is better than no move at all for the spiky frontman?
