Both The Mirror and The Telegraph are reporting on Tuesday that a Diego Costa deal will be announced soon. How soon, you ask? Both papers are suggesting that the only hold up was the completion of a physical, and now that the striker is back in training with the Spanish national team, that a deal could be announced before the end of the week.

It would be awfully nice to have a Costa deal completed, as any signing which means significantly less Fernando Torres on the pitch will go over very well with me.  The sooner, the better, as far as I'm concerned.

With that in mind, I've got my fingers crossed that the papers are correct and that an announcement is coming very soon. Once our biggest hole is filled with a world-class performer in his prime, we'll be able to spend the rest of the summer chasing targets to round out a Premier League and Champions League contending side. Next season can't start soon enough...
