French side interested in Costa – Starr Fm

Marseille president Jacques-Henri Eyraud has confirmed that his side is interested in Diego Costa and wants to bring the Chelsea forward to the club.

The Spanish international has been linked with a move away from Chelsea since the Blues’  boss Antonio Conte told him he is not needed by the club this season and his preference has been to rejoin Atletico Madrid. But Atletico have so far failed to agree a fee with the Blues and Costa remains in exile in Brazil.

– I like his character, his grit and his sense of combat. He would fit in very well at OM. However, he has a complicated contractual situation. If a player ticks all the boxes, then we showed that we were able to do the transactions, said Jacques.

Marseille have been active in the transfer market with Florian Thauvin, Luiz Gustavo, Valere Germain and Clinton N’Jie among the arrivals this summer. And Eyraud has revealed he’s a fan of Costa and would try to sign him as looks to bring a striker to the club.
