“We all want Diego Costa to come, but the situation is complicated,” Atletico Madrid midfielder Koke told Spanish outlet Cadena Ser when asked whether the striker will join the La Liga side this summer.

Then Koke added: “If Diego comes, he will help us and he already knows a lot of us at the club so for us it would be very exciting”.

It is understood the Spain international wants a move to Atletico Madrid, as he seemed reluctant to sign for any other side which showed interest in him earlier this summer. And Everton are one of the teams among the 28-year-old.

Chelsea defensive midfielder Andreas Christensen is not considering to leave the club on loan as he wants to break into Antonio Conte‘s first-squad this season.

“I’ve heard people from the outside say that I went out on loan as a kid and I’ve returned as a first-team player, and I think that was the main objective – Christensen said – I’ve come back a little bit stronger in everything, both in terms of personality and the way I play”.

The Italian manager has confirmed he rates the Denmark international a good player, who’s adapting well to his idea of football.

“I think I’m a little bit cleverer because I always think about what could happen next on the pitch, what could go wrong. I’ve come back a bit wiser and more experienced”.

“I didn’t want to only go out on one loan at one club, and then to another club, and then another. I wanted to be able to stabilise myself in one place and then come back ready.

Christensen spent last two seasons with Borussia Monchengladbach in Bundesliga: “I’ve played two seasons in the Champions League and I’ve played against the greatest strikers in the game. Of course, that gives you much more confidence”.

“You leave as a kid and you come back knowing you can play with the big names” he ended.
