Aged 32, Costa has fallen from prominence at Atleti in recent times following the summer arrival of Luis Suarez from Barcelona, who is now the preferred central striker alongside Joao Felix in attack.
The Brazil-born Costa has started just two matches in La Liga to date this campaign whilst his second spell at Los Rojiblancos has been disrupted by injuries and spells of prolonged poor form – starting just 14 matches in each of the last two league campaigns.
The Spain international now appears to be in the midst of negotiating his exit from the club, six months ahead of his contract expiring.
