Atletico Madrid are ready to replace star Diego Costa after Chelsea agreed a €39m deal with Los Rojiblancos for the striker – although it will not be official until after the Champions League final.

Costa, who has had an outstanding season for Diego Simeone's side, has been reportedly watched for months by Blues boss Jose Mourinho, who has earmarked the Brazilian-born as the man to lead his attack next season.

According to German publication Kicker, Atletico are close to making an offer of €22m for Torino attacker Ciro Immobile as Chelsea-bound Costa's replacement.

But the Champions League finalists will have to move quickly as the 24-year-old - who has shown great promise by scoring 22 goals in the Serie A - has attracted interest from big clubs in Europe, particularly from Borussia Dortmund.

The German giants are also keen on taking the player and have already offered €15m for him with Robert Lewandowski joining Bayern Munich.

Apart of Immobile, Atletico are also reportedly monitoring Brazilian striker Leandro Damiao and, according to Daily AS, the Spanish giants have made ​​a €13m offer to Santos for the youngster.

Moreover, Tottenham's Roberto Soldado has been reportedly linked with a move away from the White Hart Lane to the Vicente Calderon. Meanwhile, according to The Sun, Atletico are also monitoring Queens Park Rangers striker Loic Remy – as well as Sevilla's Carlos Bacca as Costa replacement, as El Confidencial reported last week.

Atletico are currently top of the league, three points ahead of Barcelona and need to avoid defeat against the Catalans to secure their first title since 1996.

Meanwhile, they face Real Madrid in the final of the Champions League next week in what is expected to be the most important days in Costa's career.
