Manchester City make a move for £9m defender Mikel Arteta wants at Arsenal

Manchester City make a move for £9m defender Mikel Arteta wants at Arsenal

Manchester City has inquired about young defender Ousmane Diomande, and according to the Daily Mail, Arsenal is also interested in the 19-year-old.

Pep Guardiola’s squad is currently attempting to catch Arsenal at the top of the Premier League table. City trails by five points, having played one more game. However, the two teams must still play each other twice this season.

The Daily Mail reports that Arsenal is a fan of Diomande. The Ivorian is a member of FC Midtjylland of Denmark. However, he is currently on loan with Mafa of the Portuguese second division.

This season, he has been a consistent starter for them. In addition, the Mail reports that Sporting would like to sign him in order to keep him in Portugal.

However, Arsenal and Sporting may have to exert effort to sign him. The Daily Mail reports that Manchester City has inquired about the teenager.

Obviously, it is unlikely that Diomande will immediately join Manchester City or Arsenal’s first team if he moves in the remaining days of the transfer window.

However, the interest in him demonstrates how promising he appears to be.

According to journalist Bruno Andrade, Midtjylland is seeking approximately £9 million for the youngster. And obviously, neither Arsenal nor Manchester City would be unable to afford him if they believe he will be a future superstar.

It will be intriguing to see where Diomande believes he will be better off between Manchester City and Arsenal.
