Liverpool fans react to £22m bid for mixed-bag Diego Costa

Liverpool fans have taken to social media site Twitter to discuss the latest buzz that is setting the Rumour Mill alight – the Reds’ £22million bid for Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa.

As we reported earlier this evening, Brendan Rodgers is hoping the big money move will see Costa add yet another attacking dimension to a very positive squad being built at Anfield.

Very exciting news indeed, and let’s hope that the Reds pull of this coup after the failed attempt of signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan last month.

So let’s hear what the journalists have to say first of all:

Costa seems like a mixed bag – very strong, bullish and high workrate, but carries with him some baggage. Take a look at this video being posted around social media by fans. A player not afraid to speak his mind.

Liverpool could have a very feisty attacking line-up presuming Luis Suarez stays too next season!

Here’s some of the fans’ reactions to the news of the bid tonight:


And finally, the most important thing of all, how does he rate on FIFA?


We’ll have a full scouting report on Diego Costa in the morning (Friday). Make sure you look out for it.
