Chelsea are favourites to sign Bologna’s defensive midfielder Amadou Diawara and are set to face competition from Italian Serie A defending Champions Juventus according to Tuttosport. The 18-year-old midfielder has already been compared to Manchester City’s Ivory Coast star Yaya Toure in the Italian media after an impressing first season in Serie A.
Tuttosport have revealed that Juventus are the latest club to show an interest in the defensive midfielder, as they look to bring in new recruits in the next transfer window. The youngster has been a regular in the Bologna starting XI ever since he arrived in the summer from San Marino and has been one of the better players in his club’s slow start to the season. His performances have brought him to the attention of clubs such as Chelsea and Juventus.
It is also revealed that Jose Mourinho is considering signing him as early as the January transfer window as the Chelsea boss has been monitoring Diawara after the impact he’s made in his debut season with Bologna.
