According to Spanish website Chelsea are ready to swap Diego Costa with Atletico Madrid striker Jackson Martinez.

Both forwards are striking at their current sides: Diego Costa scored just 3 goals in 14 Premier League, while Martinez netted only 2 in 11 matches in La Liga.

The Colombian moved to Atletico from Porto last summer for £35m but since his performances were disappointing he can move soon.

Costa moved to Chelsea in summer 2014 for £30m and after a terrific first season where he gave a huge contribution to secure the Premier League title he’s struggling to have the best form this year, having now also issues with the fans that booed him in the last match against Sunderland for his poor performances and because he is believed to have taken down former manager José Mourinho.

For Costa it would be a return to Atletico Madrid, where he played for four seasons before heading off to the Blues.
