Arsenal have made it known to the agent and directors that they will be starting negotiations for a potential €80m transfer


Arsenal have communicated their plans to the agent of Ousmane Diomande and the directors of Sporting Lisbon to initiate discussions regarding a potential €80m transfer.


It has been reported that Arsenal has officially notified the agent of Ousmane Diomande and the directors of Sporting Lisbon about their desire to initiate negotiations for the potential transfer of the defender during the upcoming summer transfer window.


The Gunners appear to be highly interested in securing the services of Diomande in order to bolster their defensive lineup. It is evident that they are now taking proactive steps towards finalizing a deal for the promising young Ivory Coast international.


According to the most recent edition of the Portuguese newspaper Record, as referenced and translated by Sport Witness, Arsenal has already communicated their intentions to the relevant individuals involved in order to commence negotiations for Diomande. It is worth noting that the player has a release clause set at €80 million.


The report highlights Chelsea’s previous interest in Diomande, with a potential offer of €60m plus add-ons to reach the €80m mark. Arsenal, however, now appears ready to match this figure.


Diomande’s future remains uncertain as he is also linked with Bayern Munich and Newcastle United. It will be intriguing to see if Arsenal can beat out these clubs and Chelsea for his signature.


Mikel Arteta’s defensive options are already strong with players like Saliba, Magalhaes, White, Timber, and Kiwior, making Diomande’s potential arrival an interesting development.


The role of Diomande within the team remains uncertain, however, it could be beneficial for AFC to enhance their squad depth for the upcoming season.


This has been a recurring problem for the team, especially when key players such as Saliba and Timber have been sidelined due to injuries in recent seasons.
