Last week, Sky Italia reported Amadou Diawara has turned down an opportunity to join Wolverhampton Wanderers as he would rather wait for an offer from AS Roma.

It was also explained that Napoli wanted to include the midfielder as a part of the deal for Kostas Manolas, but the defender’s employer were demanding his entire release clause to be paid.

Tutto Mercato Web now claim the two clubs have found middle ground and are pushing for a deal which covers both players, while the Italian website warns Roma to ‘watch out for Arsenal’ where Diawara is concerned.

The Gunners have added the Guinea international to their list of targets, in case Lucas Torreira asks for a move away from the Emirates.

Torreira has been linked with AC Milan and the reports have only intensified after former Sampdoria boss Marco Giampaolo was appointed as the new manager at the San Siro.

TMW also claim Arsenal are looking at Real Betis’ Giovani Lo Celso, which is strange considering he’s a completely different kind of midfielder to those named.
