Diego Costa will undergo medical examinations in Wolverhampton in Tuesday. If the striker passes his tests, it is very likely that he will be offered a contract by Wolves in their search to replace new signing Sascha Kalajdzic, who will meet with a knee specialist after tearing ligaments at the weekend.
Costa is a free agent and Wolverhampton manager Bruno Lage could sign him even after the end of the summer transfer window. Wolves have been on the lookout for a new striker since the start of the summer and thought they had found their No.9 with the £15.5m plus bonuses signing of Kalajdzic from Stuttgart.
But the Molineux club confirmed in a statement on Sunday that the attacking midfielder picked up a long-term injury on his official debut against Southampton in the 1-0 win.
It was another blow for Lage and company after the team lost striker Raul Jimenez to injury in the warm-up, with the Mexican having been dogged by injury problems since the start of pre-season this summer.
