Tim Cahill has suggested on beIN SPORTS that Everton should make a move for Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa in the summer transfer window.

The former Everton star and icon believes that the 30-year-old Spain international striker will fit the Toffees and will be a hit among the fans.

Cahill said on beIN SPORTS: “I would say for Everton, Diego Costa. You just asked me for someone that I think would suit the style, the fans.”

Blockbuster signing

Costa has not exactly been a huge success at Atletico since he returned to the Spanish club from Chelsea in January 2018, but the 30-year-old remains a brilliant player and will be a blockbuster signing for Everton.

The Spain international was a success at Stamford Bridge during his spell in the Premier League, and he could be the striker that the Toffees have been looking for since the departure of Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United.

Everton have a good attacking unit, but the Merseyside outfit do lack a prolific number nine, as Cenk Tosun has yet to fully convince the fans and Dominic Calvert-Lewin is still very young and raw.
