Breaking News: Arsenal clear favorites to sign Costa

Although odds are in Arsenal’s favor for signing the Brazilian born striker but still nothing can be said. But Arsenal fans have a fantastic news as the odds are totally favoring Arsenal. the odds show Arsenal four times more likely, at 2/1, to sign Costa than the Blues (8/1). And United are even less likely at 9/1, despite their struggles.

He reportedly refused a lucrative offer from Brendan Rodgers in the summer. Arsenal may be the team most likely to be his next club, Atletico are still strong favourites to keep him for now.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has been given the full backing of owner Stan Kroenke and the board to splash the cash and is understood to be willing to spend over £30m to land the Brazilian ace. Costa has been in blistering form for the high-flying Madrid team, with Chelsea also keen on the 25-year-old.

Signing Costa would send out a strong message to the rivals and Arsenal will have a player upfront who could score goals on his own when the supply from the midfield is limited.
