With José Mourinho blaming the lack of depth in his squad following Roma’s 6-1 defeat to Bodo in the UEFA Conference League, the manager basically told the board that he doesn’t count on those players who were on the pitch.
Among those who started that match was Amadou Diawara, who was heavily linked to a Wolverhampton Wanderers move in the summer.
The Italian media many times claimed Wolves were working to sign the midfielder. The local reports, however, said at one point that the offer was rejected by the 24-year-old, who decided to stay in Italy.
Well, now with things not going great in those first months of the season, it’s now claimed that Diawara could soon be leaving the Serie A side, meaning that Bruno Lage could have another shot at signing him.
Outlet Calciomercato today features a story about Roma’s squad which lists all the reserves who could soon leave the club.
Regarding Diawara, it’s claimed that he was ‘largely insufficient’ in the match against Bodo, and ‘Mourinho’s total rejection’ could lead to his exit.
Back in the summer, it had been said that Wolves would pay up to €15m to land the midfielder.
With this new situation, however, the club could certainly use other arguments to get the signing for a bit cheaper.
