Everton have been tipped to break into the Premier League's top four next season – if they sign Diego Costa.

One former manager certainly thinks so but with Everton still struggling to find a prolific striker to lead the line following Romelu Lukaku's departure in 2017, he believes that bringing back former Chelsea man Costa to the Premier League from Atletico Madrid would be the key.

The Blues have been linked with a move for the 30-year-old in recent days and Sam Allardyce , whose own recruit to fill the Lukaku void Cenk Tosun has not been able to hit the heights expected of him, reckons Costa could still do a job up front despite scoring just four goals for Diego Simeone's side last term.

“And if they got a Costa, and they get him moving and scoring goals like he did at Chelsea, they could possibly get there.

The financial chasm between the English top flight's established 'big six' and the rest of the division was brought into sharp focus by the latest available accounts that showed the revenue gap between sixth-biggest club Tottenham and seventh-biggest Everton had reached a record £191million .

He told talkSPORT : “Fourth is up for grabs – Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United… “Who is going to break in?

However the Blues finished last season strongly and were third in the Premier League form table over the last eight games of 2018/19 behind title challengers Manchester City and Liverpool.
