Midfielder Diarra is said to be ‘set’ for a big move to England this summer.

Scouts from the nine clubs watched him play against Nice last week. And apparently, most will watch him again at Troyes in Ligue 1 today.

Diarra, who was born in Senegal, is reported to be valued around £20 million already.

It is stated that Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, West Ham United, Crystal Palace, Leeds United, Leicester City and Aston Villa are the other eight clubs keen.

Strasbourg are open to selling the youngster this summer.

Diarra, who’s represented France at U16s and U18s level, signed his first professional contract with Strasbourg in August 2021.

Molineux is likely to see a lot of change again this summer in terms of players.

Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho are both expected to depart.

Neves appeared to be saying goodbye yesterday as he was substituted off late on against Everton.

And Moutinho will reportedly not be offered another new deal by the club.

Habib Diarra could be an exciting addition for Wolves

Clearly, there is something about Diarra to have this level of interest leading into the summer.

The fact he’s already a French youth international further suggests his potential.

Wolves picked up a gem last year raiding the French market with the signing of Boubacar Traore.

The club also landed Rayan Ait-Nouri a couple of years ago from Angers.

So perhaps this could be another exciting addition for Wolves but clearly, there is a lot of work to be done with almost half the Premier League seemingly keen to snap Diarra up.
