The West Londoners are undergoing a rebuilding process and they are looking to bring in young talents with high potential.

He was a key player for Portugal in the World Cup, featuring in every match and earning a spot in the World Cup XI.

Chelsea currently have Kepa Arrizabalaga and Edouard Mendy in their goalkeeping ranks. Arrizabalaga was brought in as a world-record signing, but Mendy eventually replaced him and played a crucial role in Chelsea’s Champions League win.

Chelsea’s scouts have been keeping an eye on Costa for several weeks and are likely to make a move for him in the summer transfer window.
