Eliesse Ben Seghir, the rising star of AS Monaco and newly capped Moroccan international, is making waves off the pitch by advocating for his club teammate, Edan Diop, to join the Moroccan national team.

Having earned his first caps for the Atlas Lions in March with impressive performances against Angola and Mauritania, the 19-year-old Ben Seghir has taken on the role of a recruiter, urging Diop to consider representing Morocco.

In a live Instagram session, Ben Seghir openly endorsed Diop’s eligibility for the Moroccan squad, emphasizing his Moroccan heritage.

The potential recruitment of Edan Diop, also 19, adds an intriguing subplot to the international scene. While Diop has featured for French youth teams, including the U20 side, he has yet to make a final decision regarding his international allegiance.

Born in Tours to a Senegalese father and a Moroccan mother, Diop faces a choice between representing Morocco, France, or Senegal.

Despite his uncertain international future, Diop’s focus remains on his club career, where he aims to secure more playing time with AS Monaco.

With just 251 minutes of game time this season, the young midfielder is eager to make a bigger impact on the pitch and enhance his prospects for both club and country.

The influence of Ben Seghir in advocating for Diop’s potential switch highlights the close-knit nature of AS Monaco’s squad and the supportive environment fostered within the club.

As both players continue to develop their talents, their international aspirations add an intriguing dimension to their burgeoning careers.

With the next international window on the horizon, all eyes will be on Edan Diop as he weighs his options and considers the possibility of representing Morocco on the international stage.
