Meet the Winter’s Hidden Gem: Amadou Diawara’s Jaw-dropping Impact!


By: Nicolas Gerbault

In the fast-paced world of football, few players know this better than Amadou Diawara, who was valued at €23M during the summer of 2020. Born in Conakry, Guinea, this powerful defensive midfielder made a name for himself in Italy after just one season at Bologna in 2015-2016, impressing with his defensive abilities in 35 matches at the age of 18. Despite interest from top Serie A clubs, he chose to continue his development at Napoli for a fee of €14.5M.

After a promising adaptation season, he failed to secure a starting position at Napoli and moved to AS Roma for €21M in the summer of 2019. However, he struggled to establish himself as a regular in the team due to injuries and managerial changes. In 2022, he made another move to Anderlecht in Belgium in search of more playing time. Now, at 26 years old, he finds himself as a rotational player, far from his ambitions.

Desiring a departure this winter, several teams are already interested in signing him after being used sparingly in Belgium. With his powerful duels, strong passing ability, and versatility, he remains an important player for the Guinean national team. Seeking a new start, he is open to offers from the Bundesliga, Premier League, and even Ligue 1. With a contract until June 2025 and a valuation of €2M, he could be a valuable winter acquisition for teams looking to strengthen their midfield.
