Diaby has enjoyed another productive season in the Bundesliga, scoring 13 goals and providing 12 assists as Leverkusen secured Champions League football for the coming season.

In total, the Frenchman has produced an impressive 35 goals and 37 assists across 124 appearances since signing with Paris Saint Germain in 2019.

Such form has seen Diaby receive international recognition, winning his first caps for the French national team in 2021. It’s while on duty for the current set of international fixtures that Diaby finally addresses his future:

It’s nice to hear my name being linked to big clubs, but I’m focused on getting together to do good things here (in France),” he told reporters in France

Then we will see what happens, but right now, I’m not thinking about it too much.”

Bayer Leverkusen are expected to command a sizable transfer fee for the winger, with a £65 million valuation being reported in the German press. The power will certainly be in Leverkusen’s hands when it comes to negotiations this summer. Diaby is still contracted to the club until 2025.
