West Ham: Hammers interested in Bamba Dieng

West Ham: Hammers interested in Bamba Dieng -Premier League News

West Ham United are reportedly among the clubs interested in signing Marseille forward Bamba Dieng, according to a report from 90min

The lowdown: Past admirers

Previously linked in January, it appears as though Dieng hasn’t left the radar at the London Stadium as Rob Newman attempts to further bolster David Moyes’ squad.

The 22-year-old Senegal international – who was part of the successful Africa Cup of Nations side earlier this year – was also targeted by Newcastle and Crystal Palace during the mid-season window.

Now it appears as though West Ham and a host of other suitors could be set to reignite their admiration in Dieng…

The latest: 90min provides fresh update

As per 90min, West Ham, Newcastle, Everton, Leeds, Wolves and Crystal Palace are all interested on the 11-cap ace this summer.

It’s claimed that the man dubbed in the report as the ‘new Sadio Mane’ is open to the possibility of a transfer having played a limited role in pre-season under new manager Igor Tudor.

The report states that Dieng – who was hailed as a ‘skilful’ and ‘very fast’ by Premier League legend Didier Drogba – has also attracted attention from Germany and Spain, whilst ‘sources’ have told the outlet that ‘clubs from around Europe are keen’ on making a deal happen.

The verdict: Go for it

Despite already adding Gianluca Scamacca and seemingly being on the verge of signing Maxwel Cornet from Burnley, adding another attacker to the ranks in east London would be a welcome boost before the end of the window.

Can you name all of these forgotten West Ham flops...who is this Allardyce signing?

Operating on either wing and as a conventional centre-forward, last season, the £9million valued Dieng scored eight times and provided three assists in 36 appearances across all competitions, a somewhat underwhelming return despite impressing in other areas such as winning 1.9 duels on average per Ligue 1 outing (Sofascore).

Sharing similar stylistic traits with such renowned names as Martin Terrier, Ferran Torres, the aforementioned Mane and the Irons’ own Jarrod Bowen (Fbref), the Senegalese attacker boasts impressing finishing, key passing and defensive contribution (WhoScored), making him the ideal candidate to bolster the options at Moyes’ disposal given the Scot’s demands.
