Bayer 04 spent 15 million euros to sign the France international from Paris Saint-Germain in the summer of 2019. He has a valid contract with Leverkusen until June 2025.

The winger has found the back of the net on 8 occasions and picked up 4 assists in 22 matches for Bayer this season across various competitions.

His impressive performances this season have apparently caught the eye of some of Europe’s big clubs.

Mikel Arteta wants to sign a new winger and Diaby is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. The Arsenal manager has kept an eye on Diaby for the last 12 months and he is impressed with the winger’s performances.
