The agent of Colombian left-winger Luis Diaz claims Cardiff City scouted the 22-year-old in a Copa Libertadores tie this week.

Carlos van Strahalen, who represents the Junior Barranquilla star, confirmed to Diario AS that Cardiff City sent a scout to Colombia for the clash with Palmeiras on Wednesday night.

‘There is an interest, like that of other clubs that came to watch the game yesterday,’ said the agent.

Although he did not confirm the names of the other teams, van Strahalen admitted the interest in Diaz ‘came from Germany, Mexico, the United States and the UK’.

River Plate have previously shown interest in Diaz, who made his international debut last year.

He has scored three goals so far in 2019 after bagging 13 in 28 league games for Junior as they won the Colombian title last year.
