According to information from Daily Mirror, Newcastle United is planning to approach Sporting Lisbon midfielder Ousmane Diomande in the near future.
The above source said Chich Choe will regularly send representatives to “watch” Diomande in Sporting’s upcoming matches to have the most accurate assessment of this 20-year-old midfielder.
This season, the Ivory Coast star is emerging as one of the best young defenders in the Portuguese National Championship. Diomande has now appeared a total of 21 times for the Jose Alvalade home team in all competitions, making a major contribution to helping Cristiano Ronaldo’s former team lead the Primeira Liga rankings at this time. Currently Diomande has returned to focus with the Ivory Coast team to compete at AFCON 2024.
Diomande joined Sporting 1 year ago from Midtjylland Club (Denmark) for 6.5 million pounds and has a 3.5-year contract with the capital team Lisbon.
