Chelsea wants to tie down Diego Costa on a longer and improved contract to wane off Atletico Madrid interest on their star man.  

Costa is currently on £150,000 a week deal. Chelsea want to reward him for his impressive form this season; Costa is the leading goal scorer in the premier league with 9 goals in eleven games.

The Brazilian born Spaniard current deal with Chelsea expires in 2019 but according to the Mirror, Antonio Conte is eager to show Costa how important he is to the team. Roman Abramovich is happy to support the Italian to improve the team in whatever capacity he deems fit.
