It became clear on Sunday that new Wolverhampton striker Sasa Calajdic has ruptured his cruciate ligament and will be out for an extended period. Their other striker, Raul Jimenez, had to sit up for the weekend’s game against Southampton after feeling something in his knee in the warm-up. Now the wolves desperately need a new striker, David Orenstein of The Athletic reports They brought a striker we know well to the trial…
The controversial Diego Costa is now 33 years old, and the striker has met Liverpool many times in the past, with both Atletico Madrid and Chelsea. He scored 52 goals in 89 games for Chelsea in the three seasons he spent in England.
The Liverpool striker was thought to be on the verge of securing him in the summer of 2013 when the Reds were ready to pay their £21m takeover clause. In the end it turned out the Reds used to get a better contract for the player, before he went to Chelsea for £32m the following year.
Wolverhampton will meet in the next match
Since January 2022, he has been without a club, after Brazilian club Atletico Mineiro terminated his contract.
The Athletic newspaper reports that Costa is expected to be at Wolverhampton on Tuesday, and will try out. Since there is no club, he can still sign, even if the transfer window is closed. Regardless of whether he signed or not, it seems unlikely that he will be ready to play by the end of next week. At best, he will sit on the bench.
Liverpool will meet Wolverhampton at Anfield on Saturday at 4 pm
