Rumor: Thorns interested in Kadidiatou Diani

It’s rapidly become an extremely speculative offseason. So far we’ve heard about who the Portland Thorns are planning to offload in order to make the #1 pick in the NWSL draft. Now rumors are spreading about the team’s interest in Kadidiatou Diani. reports that the French winger has turned down a contract extension with Paris Saint-Germain and that the Thorns are supposedly ready to make a big offer to get her to ensure that her career takes her to Portland next.

Diani (whose first name is often shortened to Kadi), only 24, has 54 caps and 10 goals for her country and started all but one game at the 2019 World Cup for France, getting an assist in the game against Brazil.
