Liverpool transfers: Reds 'table Diego Costa bid'
1st August 2013 10:33pm BST
Liverpool have reportedly tabled a £21 million bid for Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa.
The offer is believed to have triggered the Brazilian star’s release clause and, according to the BBC, boss Brendan Rodgers is hopeful of completing the deal quickly.
Costa, who signed for Atletico from Valladolid in 2010, scored 10 goals in La Liga last season.
Liverpool, who are currently awaiting a response from Atletico, have also insisted the move has no bearing on the future of Luis Suarez – who was recently the subject of a £40,000,001 bid from Arsenal.
The Reds rejected the offer from the Gunners, and have no intention of selling their prized asset unless a club matches their £50m valuation of the player.
