Sporting made history by eliminating Arsenal from the Europa League at the Emirates Stadium. One of the standout men in the leonine team was Ousmane Diomande, who, with the difficult task of replacing Coates, had an excellent game. According to journalist Bruno Andrade, the gunners were very close to buying the midfielder from Midtjylland, but gave up.
At the age of 19, Diomande shows that he can be a ‘serious case’ in world football. The Ivorian youngster shone in the lions’ defensive axis against the Premier League leaders, although he arrived at Alvalade just two months ago. According to the journalist, the Danish emblem set the price of the central defender at 10 million euros, with the British trying to reduce the value, with the thought of a possible loan… to Sporting.
Although Arsenal ‘battled’, the deal fell through and Diomande ended up ‘landing’ in Alvalade, in exchange for 7.5 million euros, which could be 12.5 million euros if the athlete reaches 90 games for the lion to the chest.
So far, the ’26 jersey’ has won seven games for the Lions, four of them in the starting line-up.
