The Lowdown: Dieng profiled
He progressed through FC Diambars’ academy in Senegal, which was co-founded by Patrick Vieira in 2003, and it looks as if a move to Selhurst Park could be on the cards.
The Latest: Palace links
According to 90min journalist Graeme Bailey, Palace are one of a number of Premier League sides who are keen on Dieng’s signature.
Everton, Leeds, Newcastle, West Ham and Wolves are also interested alongside the Eagles, as well as sides from Germany and Spain.
Where will Palace finish this season?
15th or lower
The Verdict: Needed?
Vieira could potentially do with Dieng’s services, especially as Jordan Ayew is into the final 12 months of his contract.
He enjoyed a breakthrough season with Marseille in 2021/22, mainly featuring as a centre-forward and from the left, and you’d like to think that his stock could continue to rise over the coming years with plenty of sides keen.
His versatility could also come in handy for Vieira, so it may well be one to watch in the final weeks of the window, especially as Marseille are looking to move the player on.
