Cape Town - Chelsea's
star striker Diego Costa has revealed that he may be on his way out,
while backing Everton's Romelu Lukaku as a good replacement for him.
Costa has recently made it clear that he would only leave Stamford
Bridge to return to former club Atletico Madrid, but they may not be
willing to meet Chelsea's transfer demands.
Should Costa head for the exit, he believes Lukaku would be a great
signing for Antonio Conte's side, after the Toffees striker netted 25
goals this season.
"I do not know - that’s a decision for the club," Costa said when asked about Lukaku, according to the Independent.
"Of course Lukaku is a very big player who played an impressive season.
I hope he can sign at Chelsea because it’s a unique club.
"He is a big player and has an impressive future for himself. The
past matches have proven that he has quality and scoring ability.
"He is a boy who will take great steps. Hopefully he will continue to
grow - he has all the qualities to stay here. Batshuayi may stay
because he's young and I could be leaving."
