The only thing that can stop East Bengal from signing Dimitrios Diamantakos, the Golden Boot winner of the recently concluded ISL, is East Bengal itself. Since the end of the ISL 2023-24 season, Dimitrios Diamantakos has been heavily linked with a potential move to East Bengal. Speculation intensified after Diamantakos announced his departure from his Kerala-based club via social media on Monday.

East Bengal fans are buzzing with excitement at the prospect of signing one of the best forwards of the recently concluded ISL. Many started believing the Greek forward is set to don the Red and Yellow jersey next season.

There is plenty of reason to celebrate this potential signing. Mumbai City FC was also in the race to acquire Diamantakos, but sources close to RevSportz have revealed that Mumbai City FC is now seeking a striker with greater potential within the City Football Group teams. This shift leaves East Bengal as the frontrunner to secure Diamantakos, one of the most formidable forwards of the last ISL season. 

Having already signed Madih Talal, the addition of Diamantakos would significantly bolster East Bengal’s squad. Last season, the Red and Yellow brigade’s over-reliance on Cleiton Silva was evident. The inclusion of Diamantakos would alleviate some of the pressure from the Brazilian forward, providing a more balanced attack.

The East Bengal management has promised their massive fanbase that they will do their utmost to strengthen the squad ahead of the upcoming season, which includes participation in the AFC Champions League 2 Qualifiers. So far, East Bengal has made all the right moves in the transfer market, and the potential signing of Diamantakos only adds to their impressive preparations.
