According to a recent report by AS (via MSN), Cardiff City are among a whole host of clubs monitoring the progress of Atletico Junior winger Luis Diaz. The player’s agent has also confirmed that the Bluebirds are indeed one of the clubs keeping tabs on the development of the Colombian youngster. In a recent interview mentioned in Wales Online, Diaz’s agent, Carlos Van Strahalen confirmed that there is interest from Cardiff on his client and said, “There is an interest, like that of other clubs that came to watch the game yesterday.”
The Colombian starlet is entirely unproven at the highest level but has shown signs of promise through some of his performances during this season. He is yet to prove that he has what it takes to become a top-level talent. The 22-year-old is quite versatile and can play in multiple positions down the wide areas. He primarily operates as a left winger but is also quite comfortable playing on the right if required.
He has made eight appearances for Atletico Junior this term, scoring two goals while grabbing two assists across all competitions. Diaz has also managed to earn one international cap for the Colombian national side so far in his young career.
Neil Warnock has done a tremendous managerial job at Cardiff City this season. His side are still in with a chance to retain their Premier League life for another season after the Bluebirds have managed to claim a priceless 2-0 win at home versus West Ham United on Saturday afternoon.
However, the Welsh outfit finds themselves in the relegation zone with just eight matches left to play in this campaign. If they do manage to stay up, then a player like Diaz could help ease their life in the English top-flight next term. The Colombian youngster is still quite raw, but Warnock might be the right man to get the best out of his talents.
The addition of a new winger will undoubtedly bolster Warnock’s attacking options at the Cardiff City Stadium. However, the Bluebirds might be better of splashing the cash on someone more proven in English football. Hence, it might be wise for Cardiff to continue monitoring Diaz’s progress over the next few years until he can prove his worth consistently on the pitch.
