Chelsea signed Costa from Atletico Madrid in 2014. He has scored 59 goals in 120 games for the Blues in all campaigns.
Atletico were very close in signing Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon but due to transfer ban they could not complete the deal, now the Frenchman is expected to move to Arsenal.
The Spanish side are now planning to seal Costa move despite they are aware that the Spaniard will not be able to play in any competitive matches until next year due to transfer ban.
Meanwhile, Chinese sides are also keeping tabs on him, they also tried to sign him in the January Transfer Window but at that time Conte was not having a proper replacement so he blocked the move.
Costa is expected to prefer a move back to La Liga instead of going to China. However, he could go out on a six month loan.
Apart from that, Chelsea have agreed to sign Antonio Rudiger from Roma.
