Incoming transfers are expected now that Roux is back in charge of team affairs, and Diomede, who was rarely used by Gerard Houllier last season, is believed to be available at the right price.
A move to France is almost certain, although Fulham were keen on the 27-year-old last year, and AJA has been forwarded as the likeliest destination for the French international, who will be surplus to requirements when John Arne Riise's finalises his switch to Anfield.
Playmaker Yann Lachuer will also return to the club, after several years spent in l'Abbe Deschamps. He left in 1998 for a year in Paris and then went to Bastia.
A swap deal involving Cyrille Jeunechamp and Pierre Deblock is being discussed.
There will also be a clear-out with Roux conceding: "For the moment, Pedro Reyes, Cyrille Magnier, Compan and Alexandre Comisetti or Khalilou Fadiga have to leave."
