Chinese club confident of signing Costa

Chinese Super League side's, Tianjin Quanjian are confident they will sign Diego Costa from Chelsea this summer.

The club's billionaire owner, Shu Yuhui revealed to the Chinese media he has verbally agreed deals with "two or three stars".

According to Sky Sports, Costa remains Tianjin's No 1 target after their previous attempts to lure the player to Asia failed at the start of the year.

They are willing to more than quadruple the Spain international's wages and make him the world's best-paid player.

The 28 year old former Atletico Madrid forward has produced his best scoring return of his three campaigns at Stamford Bridge this season.

Although he trails Romelu Lukaku and Harry Kane in the Premier League scorer charts, Costa's overall haul of 24 in all competitions eclipses previous totals of 21 and 16 goals.

The striker is contracted with Chelsea for another two years but Tianjin's interest in him has not wavered and they appear set to attempt to push a deal through.
