Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Nuno Espirito Santo refused to address transfer rumours linking Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa with a move to the club this summer.

The Wolves boss didn’t give any answer to reporters when he was asked about Diego Costa during his pre-match press conference ahead of the Premier League Asia trophy final.

According to him, he doesn’t speak about players of other clubs.

Recent reports claimed that Wolves have agreed on a deal to sign him but that turned out to be wide off the mark.

Wolves are the bookmakers’ favourite to sign Diego Costa this summer.

The former Chelsea striker has been linked with a move away from Spanish La Liga giants Atletico Madrid this summer after 18 months at the club on his second coming.

Diego Costa left Atletico Madrid in the summer of 2014 for Chelsea where he spent three years before returning to Spain for his second spell at Atletico Madrid.

During his time at Chelsea, Diego Costa won two Premier League titles in three seasons at the club.

He could return to the club this summer on the back two seasons in Spain.

Apart from Wolves, fellow Premier League club, Everton are also interested in the Brazilian-born Spanish international striker.
