Spurs Transfer News: Tottenham scouted Bayer Leverkusen’s Moussa Diaby against Atletico Madrid

According to transfer news on 90min (h/t Yorkshire Evening Post), Tottenham Hotspur were one of five Premier League clubs who sent representatives to watch Bayer Leverkusen’s Moussa Diaby against Atletico Madrid.

Chelsea, Manchester City, Newcastle United, and Arsenal also had scouts present in the stands when the German giants beat Los Colchoneros by a 2-0 scoreline. The French winger was on the scoresheet as he scored the last goal of the match via a simple finish at the back post.

Diaby has eight caps for the France national team and has a contract that expires in the summer of 2025 (Transfermarkt). Diaby has a total of one goal and two assists in nine games across all competitions this season.

The 23-year-old still has his best years ahead of him. Those who have watched him play would acknowledge the speed and dribbling ability of the winger.

Diaby in demand

He can play down either flank and would be an enticing attacking option for manager Antonio Conte to have out wide. With Ivan Perisic and Ryan Sessegnon, the former Inter Milan manager has shown an inclination towards playing attacking wingers as wing-backs in his system.

Currently, Spurs aren’t devoid of attacking options with Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski already embroiled in a very competitive battle for regular playing time. But in Diaby, Spurs could get an out-and-out winger who will keep defenders on their toes with his pace.

However, it is clear that Spurs, or any other team for that matter, may not have a clear path that leads to his signature. He apparently has “heavy interest” from teams in England.

It remains to be seen if the Lilywhites make a move for him in the future. The last winger they signed from Leverkusen – Son-Heung-min – proved to be a resounding success.
