Bayer Leverkusen are preparing for a summer of inquiries from clubs interest in Moussa Diaby's services.

The French winger has taken another big step forward in his development this season and has subsequently been linked with a number of clubs, including AS Roma, Manchester United, Arsenal and Newcastle.

Arsenal are understood to be particularly keen on Diaby, but Leverkusen would prefer to keep the 22-year-old, according to Sport Bild, who claims it would take an offer of a whopping €75 million to prize him away from BayArena.

Should Diaby end up leaving the club, Feyenoord's Luis Sinisterra could be brought in as his replacement.

Sport Bild also reports that Leverkusen are expected to receive a fresh offer for Mitchel Bakker from Newcastle United.

The Premier League side had a reported €20 million offer for the left-back turned down in January and are now reportedly prepared to offer €25 million in an attempt to seal the deal.
