Romano revealed in his personal column that Chelsea and Arsenal are paying attention to Sporting CP’s 19-year-old central defender Diomande.
Romano pointed out: “Chelsea will be looking for signings at the central defender position in 2024. It is now known that Portuguese central defender Diomande has been linked to the Blues, but so far I have not heard anything about the transfer. Substantive discussion, let’s see if the connection between the two becomes more concrete.
In addition, as previously reported, Arsenal has been paying attention to this player for some time. Of course, other clubs are also interested in Diomande. This is a very good player, so it is normal to receive attention from many parties. “
The 19-year-old Diomande’s contract with Sporting CP lasts until June 30, 2027. The current transfer price is estimated at 25 million euros. He has 2 goals and 1 assist in 16 games in all competitions this season.
