“I don’t hide it, I’m ambitious and I want to join a top-six side. I am 26 years old and it’s time to take that step.”
Diame is physically exceptional, and has the ability to run through the centre of the park, thanks to his sheer ferocity rather than any particular technical ability.
As a dynamic bench option, Diame could be effective for Liverpool, when he can take advantage of opposition tired legs.
