Mendes, Costa's agent, met with the chairman of the Chinese club Tianjian Quanjian Shu Yuhui on Friday.
The full report in the Standard says that Tianjian have one more berth for a foreign player, and they want a world-class player to fill that gap.
The 28-year-old reportedly clashed with medical staff over the severity of a recurring back injury.
Costa, the Premier League's leading scorer with 14 goals, will miss Saturday's game following a disagreement with Chelsea manager Antonio Conte and a club fitness coach Julio Tous, reports claim.

Costa is said to have not trained with the rest of the squad for the past three days after a row with Tous over the extent of an injury he was complaining of.
It comes at a time when he has reportedly been offered a contract worth £30 million-a-year with Chelsea to be offered a transfer fee of £80 million.
