It is being reported this morning that Chelsea have agreed a deal to sign Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa for €40m.

The deal with Costa is not likely to be announced for another month, after Costa's involvement in the Champions League final and the close of La Liga.

Costa has been linked to Chelsea all season with manager Jose Mourinho making no secret of his desire to sign a striker.

It's also believed that Mourinho wants to get the deal signed off as soon as possible.
