Villarreal are interested in Bologna attacker Alessandro Diamanti.

The Yellow Submarine will move into the transfer market in the New Year for a striker, with Nilmar, Marco Ruben and Giuseppe Rossi all breaking down this season with injury.

Former West Ham United attacker Diamanti is on the agenda at Villarreal.

Villarreal president Fernando Roig and coach Juan Carlos Garrido are actively discussing a move for the 28 year-old.
