Diego Costa is no longer wanted at Chelsea and AC Milan is looking like a possible destination following the confirmation by the CEO of the Italian club, Marco Fassone that they have held talks with Costa's agent.

Costa's former club, Atletico Madrid have been mooted as his most likely destination, but the LaLiga side are under a transfer ban until January and Fassone has hinted big-spending Milan could step in.

"I would prefer to avoid talking about players from other teams; Diego Costa is a great player, but a Chelsea player," Fassone told Sky Sports.

"We went to see [Costa's agent] Jorge Mendes; there is a lot you can talk to him about. Costa is a great player but he is of Chelsea. That's all."

Milan have already made 10 signings ahead of the new Serie A season and getting Costa who scored 20 goals last season will be  massive.
