However, a transfer ban means the Spanish club can not make signings before January and they have yet to come near to Chelsea's £50m asking price.
Spain worldwide Diego Costa is said to no longer be in Antonio Conte's plans at Stamford Bridge, with the pair having reportedly butted heads on several occasions last season.
He will fill the void left by Diego Costa who was told by Conte that he no longer had a place at Chelsea after a row at the start of 2017.
Mendes has supposedly reminded Costa that he needs to find regular football this season or risk missing out on a place in the Spain team for the World Cup next summer - so sitting in the stands at Atletico for six months is not an option.
Costa is reported to have set his heart on a return to his former club Atletico Madrid, even though their transfer embargo will not allow him to play for the La Liga side until January and now it has emerged he is set to make a dramatic move to get out of Chelsea.
"Diego Costa? If he comes in January... we can't say anything about that yet".
"The player knew the decision, his agent knew the decision, clearly the lawyer has not been well informed". The player, his agent and the club knew very well the future of the player in the summer.
The 28-year-old Spain worldwide striker is no longer in the plans of Blues boss Antonio Conte following the arrival of Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid.
Speaking to Spanish news agency EFE, via Sky Sports, Costa's lawyer Ricardo Cardoso has confirmed that Chelsea's anti-hero has handed in his transfer request, to speed up a much drawn-out exit from Stamford Bridge.
"For sure I don't understand why the lawyer is getting involved because the situation is very clear".
"Again?" Conte asked. "I have to repeat the same?"
Conte reiterated those plans during a recent press conference, saying that the decision to part ways with the club's top scorer was eventually made back in January when Costa was heavyly linked with a big money move to the Chinese Super League.
The latter left to return to Dynamo Kiev, from where he'd been on loan, before signing for Galatasaray - replacing Sneijder. This means he will very likely be in the squad when Nice face Napoli in the Champions League play-off.
