London: Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has reportedly told the club`s hierarchy that signing a world striker should be their key priority during this summer transfer window and has told his club that Atletio Madrid star Diego Costa is the `man he wants`.
The club is ready to go all out to sign Costa from Atletico Madrid this summer and have made the striker their top transfer target despite Mourinho`s links to Luis Suarez, Gonzalo Higuain, Wayne Rooney and Radamel Falcao .
According to Metro.co.uk, Costa`s excellent form in La Liga, scoring 21 goals in 26 matches, has not gone unnoticed and despite Paris Saint-German and Real Madrid linked to the star`s service, Chelsea believes that they are in pole position to sign him.
Chelsea are reportedly considered to value Costa at 27 million pounds, which is below is release clause, but a fee that could be accepted if the player pushes for a switch away.
Atletico are already looking for another striker to fill Coasta`s gap as the club is well aware of their strikers rising stock and they are certain that offers would arrive for their leading light in the summer, the report added.
