Report: Napoli consider Costa

Napoli are reportedly preparing a swoop for Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa this summer.

Marca cites a report in Tuesday’s Gazzetta dello Sport, which claims Napoli boss Carlo Ancelotti ‘likes’ Costa and has ‘approved’ of his arrival.

The Partenopei have regularly gone with two up front this season but have only one out-and-out No 9 in Arkadiusz Milik.

The former Chelsea hitman is expected to leave Atleti after scoring just five goals all season, in a campaign that saw him banned for eight games and refuse to train.
