Diego Costa is set to join Wolverhampton Wanderers, as broken by Fabrizio Romano.
Wolves have been looking for a new striker following the knee injury of Sasa Kalajdzic, who is set to be sidelined for the next couple of months.
With the closing of the transfer window, the Premier League side can only consider free agents who are not affiliated with any clubs.
Wolves have agreed a one-year deal with the Brazilian-born Spanish international and they have already overcome the player’s work permit issue. He is expected to undergo his medical and sign his contract today before his arrival is made official.
Diego Costa has been without a club since January 2022 following his release from Atlético Mineiro. He was heavily linked with a move to Rayo Vallecano this summer, however, an agreement never materialised between the two sides.
The Premier League will not be unfamiliar territory for the 33-year-old, having played for Chelsea between 2014 and 2017.
