Arsenal and Liverpool are both considering beat the deadline day bids for Monaco winger Keita Balde Diao.
The exciting 22-year-old only joined last summer from Lazio in a deal with just shy of £30million – but he has already impressed hugely with the Principality outfit.
Monaco sporting director Michael Emenalo has been tasked with buying low and selling high, the club’s hierarchy and they are seemingly will to listen to offers – especially after spending £17million on Italian teenager Pietro Pellegri over the weekend.
With Thomas Lemar having an asking price of close to £90million – both Arsenal and Liverpool have been alerted to the fact that Diao could be landed for just £60million.
Napoli have been trying to do a deal this week, but that has now alerted both Arsenal and Liverpool – and Monaco have encouraged both to make offers.
Should Keita leave, Napoli are firm favourites at 6/4, with both Liverpool and Arsenal listed at 8/1.
