Former Chelsea striker, Diego Costa is set to return to the Premier League, with Wolverhampton reportedly considering signing the mercurial striker on a short-term deal.

The 33-year-old forward became a free agent after terminating his contract with Brazilian side, Atletico Mineiro in January.

Following Austrian Wolves’ forward, Sasa Kalajdzic injury in Wolves 1-0 win against Southampton on Saturday, it was inevitable that Wolves would turn to the free agent market.

The club put out a medical statement that the striker who joined from German Bundesliga side, Stuttgart will undergo treatments. There is no word on a potential return date at this moment in time.

“Sasa felt a pain in his knee late in the first-half against Southampton. Unfortunately, scans reveal an anterior cruciate injury and he will see a knee specialist tomorrow.

“We now need to support Sasa in his recovery and further updates will follow.”

According to the Athletics, Costa will arrive in Wolverhampton on Tuesday for a trial. Officials will assess his fitness and suitability to the team.

Costa has a wealth of experience in the Premier League, having played three seasons for Chelsea earlier in his career.

The former Spain international scored 59 goals in 120 games during his three-season stint with the west London club, winning two Premier League titles and the League Cup during his time at Stamford Bridge.
