Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing Guinea international Amadou Diawara.
According to Tuttomercatoweb as reported by Goal.com, the AS Roma midfiedler has attracted strong interest from England with the Gunners among the reported admirers.
Arsenal have been heavily linked with Ghana international Thomas Partey over the last few months, but the North London club are said to have dropped their interest in the midfielder having been scared off by Atletico Madrid’s demands.
Diawara’s agent Daniele Piraino confirmed that the 23-year-old has attracted interest from the English Premier League but that he is focussed on furthering his career at Stadio Olimpico for the time being.
He is concentrated on his career,” Piraino told Tuttomercatoweb.
“Diawara is at a top club like Roma, where he is happy, as there is enthusiasm around the new owners.
“However, he is also liked by many clubs in England, including Arsenal.
“Being linked with certain clubs is pleasing for him, as these are prestigious sides.
“Amadou is concentrated on football and his career.”
Diawara joined Roma from Serie A rivals Napoli last year. He scored one goal in 31 appearances across all competitions last season.
