Zakaria Diallo - playing for Brest - close up

Report: Montreal Impact in advanced talks to sign defender Zakaria Diallo


Blerim Dzemaili may be on the way out at the Montreal Impact, but Zakaria Diallo could be on the way in.

French outlet L'Equipe reported on Friday that Brest defender Diallo is in advanced talks to join the Impact. Montreal have reportedly offered the 31-year-old Diallo a two-year deal.

Diallo has seldom been used by Brest this season in Ligue 2. The Frenchman has made just two league appearances in the current campaign, with the last one coming on Oct. 20.

If Diallo were to sign with the Impact, however, he would bring with him plenty of experience. In addition to suiting up for Brest, he has played for a handful of other clubs throughout Europe, including Belgian side Royal Charleroi and French club AC Ajaccio.
