Chelsea on the lookout for Ousmane Diomande from Sporting CP

Wright Chelsea's Potter

Following their eighth Premier League defeat against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Christmas Eve, it seems Chelsea season was nearly over. However, three consecutive league wins have revived hope for a potential turnaround before May.

Mauricio Pochettino has significant work ahead. And the ongoing January transfer window will likely bring in new additions to address the challenges.

As per a recent football.london report, Chelsea has shown interest in the highly promising young center-back Ousmane Diomande from Sporting CP. Thus, having reportedly engaging in discussions with the Lisbon-based club.

However, Chelsea faces competition for the Ivorian talent. Since, the Liverpool Echo disclosed this week that Premier League rivals Liverpool also have a strong interest. That is in securing the 20-year-old’s signature this year.

Will Chelsea be able to secure Diomande?

If Chelsea successfully completes this deal, they would acquire a highly talented footballer. He has the potential to emulate the success of Carvalho.

At 20 years old, it’s challenging to predict whether Diomande will have a career as remarkable as Carvalho’s. But there are evident parallels between the two.

This year, the comparisons intensified when the Englishman returned from Brighton & Hove Albion. Right then, the England international received Terry’s iconic shirt number 26. Predictably, the comparisons began to pour in.

Ultimately, living up to the ‘next Carvalho and Terry’ label for Chelsea will be a formidable task. Nevertheless, these two young talents present one of the more promising duos with the potential to achieve such expectations.
