Liverpool have submitted a £21.8million (24.9 million euros) bid for Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa, the Liverpool Echo claimed Thursday.

The 24-year-old Brazilian international would be the third most expensive signing in the club's history behind Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez.

Costa could even be a replacement for the controversial Suarez who has been linked all summer with a move away from Anfield in his desperate pursuit of Champions League football.

Costa scored 20 goals in 44 appearances for Atletico in all competitions last season.
