Tottenham Could Lose Out To Arsenal In The Race To Sign 9-Goal Championship Attacker

One of the brightest players from the Championship could be on his way to London soon. Wolverhampton Wanderers seem to have found a star in Helder Costa and the young winger certainly has proved his worth to Paul Lambert, their manager.

The 23-year-old has scored nine goals and has provided eight assists in 34 Championship games and had moved to the club on loan at the start of the season but that deal was made permanent in the winter window. Now it seems Costa has attracted a lot of attention from Premier League clubs and Lambert wasn’t hiding the fact that Costa could be on the move soon.

“He’s a big player. If people come in for him we will have to deal with it,” Lambert said, speaking to the Birmingham Mail.

“Money talks and anyone who tells you different is lying.”

He was instrumental in the club’s win over Liverpool in the FA Cup and is destined for bigger things for sure.

Richard Marsh from Ladbrokes News said (via Squawka): “Costa has been tormenting defenders in the Championship all season, and the Wolves ace now looks destined for bigger things with Arsenal and Chelsea favourites to land the talented 23-year-old.”

Costa is reportedly being chased by Arsenal and the club is 2/1 favourites to sign him up while London rivals Chelsea are not far behind being 3/1. Tottenham are also interested in the winger and the Whites are 6/1 favourites, tied with the likes of Monaco and Manchester United. Manchester City are 10/1 while Liverpool are 14/1 according to the bookmakers.

Costa certainly is someone with a bright future and he could turn out to be the perfect replacement for Moussa Sissoko and Erik Lamela who could be leaving the Lane at the end of the season.

Wolves also wouldn’t be able to ask for a lot of money for the player since they won’t be making it to the Premier League next season. The bidding war would be a big problem if Spurs want to sign the youngster on the cheap but Daniel Levy does have a way of getting things done.

  1. Depends on how you define ‘a lot of money’ . Wolves paid 13 million for him in January, and he has a release clause in his generous four year contract set at 25 million. So that will be the starting point for the likes of Arsenal and Spurs. Maybe that isn’t a lot of money for those clubs? Also remember Wolves are now owned by the mega rich Fosun group, and are flushed with money, so they don’t need to sell, despite the restrictions of financial fair play rules.

  2. The league wolves are in will make no difference to his price! We paid £13m and gavr him a 5yr contract. He wont be going anywhere for less than £20m
