Before we signed Eto'o, when our striker situation was hotly debated here, I'd repeatedly suggest Costa's candidacy. The 25 year-old's development in the last couple of seasons has been transparently exponential. And so far this season, Costa's run of 10 goals in just 7 games has been simply sensational, propelling him to the top scorer accolades in Europe right now. Costa's astonishing start to the season means he has done what even Radamel Falcao could not do in his two campaigns at the Madrid club: score in 5 consecutive games in La Liga. Costa should be worth some consideration from us, especially since it's not entirely unreasonable that we might only have Torres and Lukaku up front after this season.
