Italian journalist Michele Criscitiello said: “I tried in every way to suggest [Diallo] to Italian clubs. I was convinced he could make a difference everywhere.
“We are in the presence of a boy who is still very young, but with impressive growth potential.
“I was able to follow him for a long time, and I'm convinced he will explode in the short term. Despite my insistence, no Italian team has really focused on Diallo.
