Arsenal and AC Milan have reportedly made checks on Sporting Lisbon defender Ousmane Diomande.

Both clubs have made checks on the 20-year-old Ivorian defender ahead of the summer transfer window, according to journalist Ekrem Konur.

But they face competition as Newcastle United, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain are also keen on Diomande.

Diomande has impressed for Sporting since joining the Portuguese side from Danish side Midtjylland in January 2023.

Reports suggests that Sporting Lisbon want around €80million for Diomande, if they are to consider selling him this summer.
