Agent confirms interest in Bologna midfielder
Chelsea have a ‘strong interest’ in Bologna midfielder Amadou Diawara, according to his agent.
The Blues were expected to be busy in the January transfer window, up until yesterday when Jose Mourinho confirmed he expects no signings in the New Year.
However, Diawara is a target and his agent has recently revealed that there is strong interest shown by the Premier League champions.
Mourinho could be in the window for a new midfielder, with concerns over Nemanja Matic and Cesc Fabregas‘ form.
Diawara’s agent, Robert Visan, has confirmed in a recent interview that there is strong interest shown from Chelsea, but he’s insisted that his client’s focus is with the Serie A side.
Agent Reveals Interest
‘There is a strong interest of Chelsea,’ Visan told Tutto Mercato Web.
‘I work with Pini Zahavi, who everyone knows, but that does not mean that will he will go to Chelsea.
‘Also the likes of Manchester City, Tottenham and Juventus follow him [but] with them I never speak of offers, only football.
‘But now, I repeat, he is indebted to Bologna.’
