Lecce defender Souleymane Diamoutene is attracting interest from England.

The Mali international, 28, is being linked with a move to England, where the likes of QPR, Blackburn Rovers and Everton are said to be interested in his services.

Lecce are prepared to sell as they seek funds for their own transfer plans.

Diamoutene had a loan spell with AS Roma last season, but was attacked by Lecce fans last month for his ties with close rivals Bari.
