Agent: 'Diawara wanted by Arsenal'

Amadou Diawara’s agent confirms he is ‘liked by many clubs in England, including Arsenal,’ so certainly won’t rule out leaving Roma in a swap with Lucas Torreira.

The 23-year-old midfielder arrived from Napoli for €21m last summer, but injuries and tactical issues saw him make only 30 competitive appearances.

“He is concentrated on his career,” agent Daniele 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 has been mentioned in a potential exchange deal with Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira.

The Uruguayan is looking for a return to Serie A, with Fiorentina and Torino also interested.
