And according to widespread reports, Spurs have been offered the chance to sign the 31-year-old this summer.

He is willing to return to England's top flight in a bid to resurrect his career following a difficult spell in Spain.

He has bagged just 10 league goals since returning to La Liga in 2017.

However, Mourinho has concerns over his age and fitness levels.

But the Portuguese manager wants to reinforce his squad ahead of the 2020/21 term.

He's looking for back-up to star striker Harry Kane with Costa's Atletico Madrid contract due to expire next summer.

Costa won the Premier League title at Chelsea with Mourinho in charge and he enjoyed a prolific campaign under him, weighing in with 20 league goals.

Spurs have so far signed two players this window following the arrivals of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Joe Hart with Matt Doherty on the verge of completing a transfer.

They're also linked with Bournemouth's Callum Wilson, Real Madrid's Gareth Bale and Brentford's Said Benrahma, among others.
