Diego Costa has never been a fan of the subtle approach.

Sports Mole's countdown of the top 25 Chelsea players in the Premier League era continues with number 21 - Diego Costa.

Should Carrasco make the switch from Madrid to London, it can only be seen as a positive for the Blues, as Conte's side look to retain their Premier League title this season.

In 2015, Atletico Madrid swept in with a reported €20 million to bring him to the Spanish capital where he has flourished on the wings of Diego Simeone's fighting unit.

Some have stated AC Milan has shown interest in Costa, but the Spaniard's heart may be set on a return to Atletico.

Last season, Costa was clearly the favoured striker, with Chelsea's second choice forward, Michy Batshuayi, only starting one game all season, whilst making 19 appearances from the bench, demonstrating that Conte will be looking to buy big in order to replace their star striker.

He confirmed that his goal is to "play a lot of games" and to use his experience to help regular goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.

If Chelsea are to sign either of the two strikers, they will cost the club around £70 million to bring them to Stamford Bridge, which would break the club's record transfer fee of £49 million spent on the former Liverpool striker, Fernando Torres.

Other reports have indicated that Matic could head to Inter, but the move to Juventus is more likely to be on the cards.
