Bayern Munich appear to be stepping up their game when it comes to scouting youth players and making it a point of interest. The Bavarians were having a proper gander at Lille defender Leny Yoro amid interest from Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain. Now, the Germans are looking to Portugal for more talent, and they have landed on Ousmane Diomande from Sporting Lisbon:

Bayern are one of the clubs following the development of Sporting centre back Ousmane Diomande (19) very closely. The Ivory Coast international, however, is close to signing a new deal with the Portuguese club.
