Borussia Dortmund have joined Arsenal and Chelsea in the race for Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa.

The Brazilian born striker is available for £34m because of a release clause in his contract. Whether he decides to leave given that his current side are flying high in the league and still in the Champions League remains to be seen.

German side Borussia are the latest to join the race for Costa, according to the Daily Express.

The inevitable news that Robert Lewandowski will leave the club in the summer is due to be confirmed in January, which means that the Champions League finalists are in the market for a replacement.

Costa would provide the attacking focal point and goalscoring currently offered by Lewandowski.
