Crystal Palace: Eagles keen on Bamba Dieng

Crystal Palace: Eagles keen on Bamba Dieng -Crystal Palace News

Crystal Palace are keen on signing Marseille forward Bamba Dieng, according to 90min.

The Lowdown: Dieng profiled

Dieng, labelled as an ‘explosive’ talent by Jorge Sampaoli, is 22 years of age and is primarily a centre-forward who can also play on either wing.

The Senegal international is valued at a career-high £9m by Transfermarkt and has scored ten goals for club and country.

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.

The Verdict: Needed?

Vieira could potentially do with Dieng’s services, especially as Jordan Ayew is into the final 12 months of his contract.

Palace fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the season?

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.
