Chelsea’s chase for Porto goalkeeper Diogo Costa is today highlighted by newspaper A Bola.

The outlet features a full-page story explaining that the Blues ‘insist’ on his signing following the departure of Edouard Mendy.

It’s said the Senegalese’s departure from Chelsea left the doors ‘wide open’ for Costa’s arrival, even though that transfer won’t be easy.

A Bola explains that the Blues’ scouting department has the ‘best references’ of the Porto star, and the problem is really his price.

The Dragons won’t take less than €75m for him, and even though it had previously been reported that Chelsea wanted to split that in three instalments, it’s said the Portuguese club won’t accept that.

According to A Bola, it’s the goalkeeper’s agent, Jorge Mendes, who shall find a way to make this deal happen.

The newspaper highlights that despite feeling happy at Porto, Costa naturally has the ambition of playing at a level such as the Premier League, so he’d be keen on that type of transfer.

Now he needs to wait for Chelsea to show up with the whole amount.
