Conte to replace David Luiz with 5.8m defender

     Chelsea could rival Manchester City in a bid to sign France Under-21 international talent Mouctar Diakhaby, according to the Daily Mail. The defending Premier League champions, who defeated Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, have been linked with the highly rated Olympique Lyonnais defender ahead of the forthcoming January transfer window.

The report suggests The Blues have joined City in sending scouts to monitor the centre-half’s development, who stands tall at 6ft 4in and offers an aerial threat – at both ends of the pitch.

Diakhaby has starred for Lyon in this campaign’s UEFA Europa League, playing the full 90 minutes in both of the French club’s respective wins over Premier League side Everton recently.

Diakhaby has featured four times for Lyon in Ligue 1 this season, as well as playing the full 90 minutes twice as the French side beat Everton both times in the Europa League group stage. The French defender has helped guide Lyon to third place in the French top flight after 12 games.
