A quick and talented attacker, Diabaté has caught the eye with a series of influential and energetic displays for Gazélec Ajaccio across 20 appearances in all competitions this term.

He is a product of the Stade Rennais academy youth system and went on to represent Stade de Reims. He made his professional debut against Olympique Lyon in December 2016.
