Wolves transfer target Habib Diarra scored a sensational goal for Strasbourg yesterday.

Apparently, Wanderers are one of nine Premier League clubs looking to potentially swoop for him this summer.

Diarra, still only 19, has been enjoying a productive campaign over in Ligue 1 and has played a part in helping Strasbourg achieve safety.

He’s now made 29 appearances this term and yesterday, he bagged his third goal of the season.

And it was a truly stunning striker from Diarra against ESTAC Troyes.

Diarra collected the ball in his own half and then drive through the middle of the park.

Under pressure from two Troyes players, he then circled back on himself to create space.

Diarra was around 30 yards from goal and lashed an effort into the corner, giving goalkeeper Gauthier Gallon absolutely no chance.

Diarra hit the ball so hard that it stayed at the same trajectory all the way.

It was a sublime hit from the youngster, who has probably just added a few more million pounds to his reported £20 million valuation. The goal can be seen here on the official Ligue 1 YouTube channel.

And he didn’t just score a great goal. Sofascore data indicates he was really good on the ball, completing 33/38 passes (87%). He also could have had a brace, hitting the woodwork at one point.

Habib Diarra looks a serious talent, with Wolves reportedly circling

What an amazing goal from Diarra, who looks to be a very exciting talent indeed.

To have the confidence to carry the ball as he did, and then shoot from distance, just shows what an exciting prospect he is.

It looks like competition to sign him is very tough.

But young players tend to do quite well at Wolves and make names for the themselves.

Diogo Jota did really well, as did Pedro Neto before he started to struggle with injuries. Rayan Ait-Nouri and Boubacar Traore both have really big potential, and Joao Gomes looks like he could be a top player in the future.

Maybe Diarra might just fancy a switch to Molineux this summer.
