According to Milliyet suggests that Kasimpasa have rejected the first offer from Chelsea for Diagne as the Apaches want £27million for 27-year-old former Juventus striker if they are to part company with the forward who has scored 20 goals in 17 appearances so far this season.

Fellow Premier League side Wolves have been linked in recent days, with Chelsea’s search for a striker taking them far and wide around Europe.

Diagne has already played for clubs in Italy, Hungary, Saudi Arabia, Belgium, China and Turkey and he has 32 goals in 34 matches since arriving from the Chinese Super League 12 months ago for Turkish Super Lig side.
