Report: Tottenham sent scouts to watch 'astonishing' £60m attacker this week
Tottenham might have had a busy old summer but it looks like there’s no rest for the wicked, with Spurs apparently having eyes on Moussa Diaby.
90Min has claimed that Tottenham had scouts in attendance to watch Diaby for Bayer Leverkusen this week as they beat Atletico Madrid in the Champions League. Along with Chelsea, Newcastle, and Arsenal’s scouts, Tottenham’s recruitment team got to see Diaby score the second and decisive goal.
90Min reports how some English clubs have a long-standing interest in the ‘astonishing‘ winger. Indeed, there were suggestions this summer that Arsenal were looking to make a £60m move for the speedy winger.
Of course, there is no time for any clubs to make their move now with the transfer window shut. But with January set to be upon us quickly after the World Cup, there is every chance Diaby’s name is one that gets mentioned again.
Diaby has been one of the key players for Leverkusen for the last few seasons now and this year finds himself playing out wide with Callum Hudson-Odoi on the other flank. Certainly, any teams playing against the German outfit know they’re in for a tough night in wide areas.
TBR’s View: Diaby Destined For England
This is a player who seems more likely than most to make the move to the Premier League eventually. Diaby looks a real prospect and given he’s already a full French international, it’s clear the quality is there as well.
Whether or not it is Tottenham who win the race remains to be seen. A number of clubs are keen and with Chelsea set to carry on spending under their new owners, you have to feel they’ll be in the race as well.
