Huddersfield Town need a bit of extra spark in attack after finishing joint-bottom of the Premier League goal-scoring charts last season. So that explains why they are allegedly keen to bring two quick and unpredictable wingers to the John Smith’s Stadium.
Limbombe, who won the Jupiler League title last season with Club Brugge, is understood to have been on David Wagner’s radar for a number of weeks now. Huddersfield will pay £10 million and they are currently discussing terms with Brugge.
The former NEC Nijmegen star was rewarded for his fine form with a first ever Belgium call-up in the spring, although he missed out on a place in Roberto Martinez’s World Cup squad.
Diakhaby, meanwhile, is expected to have a medical this week ahead of an £8 million move from Monaco.
The 22-year-old Frenchman arrived at the principality club for around the same fee from Rennes last summer but struggled to make an impression. Just 10 of his 22 Ligue 1 appearances came from the start.
FootMercato claimed on Tuesday that Diakhaby was interested in a move to Huddersfield.
