Arsenal bookie favourites to sign La Liga striker
With Manchester United out of contention for the title this season Arsenal will do battle with Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City for the Premier League crown.
Many have been waiting for an Arsenal dip but they keep answering all the questions asked of them and winning vital matches every week. They are most definitely a serious title contender. Even with big names missing over the last couple of games they have been doing the business.
But, with Olivier Giroud injured, the need for another top striker is now even more pressing. Whether Arsene Wenger can bring in a top name in a notoriously difficult window is highly debatable. He may instead look for a decent loan signing – to that end, the name of Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata has oft been used.
But Arsenal would love to bring in a player like Luis Suarez – the man they tried to sign in the summer. Suarez looks to be staying put for now at least. But Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa is almost a carbon copy of the Uruguayan and has been linked to Arsenal for some time.
Bookmaker SkyBet now have Arsenal as favourites to sign Costa in the winter window. At odds of 6/1 Arsenal are way ahead of the competition for his signature. With 88 goals in 241 club appearances the Brazilian, 25, is getting better by the year. He’s a live wire, lighting fast and supremely skilful footballer. We can’t imagine a better sign gin for Arsenal this winter.
Let’s see the lad in action. CLICK FOR COSTA
