Currently leading the way for the troublesome free agent is Wolverhampton Wanderers, a club who have struggled tremendously for goals in 2020/21 with and without the injury to star man, Raul Jimenez.
As of now, there is currently no return date for Jimenez from his horrific head clash with David Luiz, but there is a good chance the Mexican won't be seen on a pitch for some time, especially how he isn't even back in training just yet.
To solve these problems, the club are reportedly looking at Diego Costa, who, in stature and in play style, has many similarities to Wolves' current goalscoring hotshot. Indeed, Costa is just two inches smaller than Jimenez's 6ft 3 inch frame, whilst the Spain international is also a serious threat in the air and tends to do most of his work in and around the six-yard box, using his physical superiority.
Given how this transfer would be on a free, it makes sense for Wolves in the current climate. And, as the club are in desperate need for goals, why not try and sign a man who has 52 Premier League goals in 89 appearances and two Premier League medals for Chelsea?
At 32, perhaps the fiery striker still has it, but given how Wolves are currently massively underperforming down in 12th, they may not have a chance but to take this risk.
Odds for Costa to join Wolves are at 6/5 as the English club lead the way with the bookmakers.
