Having developed into one of Europe's deadliest strikers at Atletico Madrid, Diego Costa made the move to Chelsea in 2014 and instantly became a fan favourite for his robust style and goalscoring exploits.
Costa has been linked with a return to Atleti in recent weeks.
The latest report suggests that the Black Eagles may loan Costa on a short-term loan until January.
It is thought that the Belgium worldwide is considering the proposal from the Premier League champions, and it is up to Atletico manager Diego Simeone to convince him to snub the Blues. Conte has added midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko to his squad but Chelsea's summer has been disrupted by former Everton star Romelu Lukaku's abrupt decision to reject the club for Jose Mourinho's Manchester United.

Nous serons mieux fixés sur nos doutes au crépuscule de ce dimanche 16 juillet puisque le coup d'envoi du match est à 15h Gmt. Les premières minutes étaient au profit des locaux, qui ne profitaient toutefois pas de cette bonne entame.
It doesn't seem as though Costa holds any grudges towards his head coach for that infamous text message earlier this summer, but it's now a question of when rather than if he returns to his beloved Atletico.
Costa is seen dancing while wearing the red and white Altetico Madrid jersey.
Costa's Instagram post got weirder when Cesc Fabregas, a Chelsea teammate got involved.
The Blues' top scorer will be unable to play until January as Atletico are now under a transfer embargo. Costa then told Febragas to "Give Conte a hug". Atleti are now serving a six-month transfer ban. The 28-year-old scored 31 goals in the Bundesliga for Borussia Dortmund last season and since joining Dortmund, he has averaged 30 goals each campaign.
