Despite his desire to stay at OM this summer, Bamba Dieng is in demand. His profile interests many Premier League clubs.
Fifth in the hierarchy of attackers behind Milik, Payet, Bakambu and Luis Suarez in the eyes of Igor Tudor at Olympique de Marseille, Bamba Dieng is in a delicate situation. The Senegalese international made good progress last season with Jorge Sampaoli and suddenly finds himself blacklisted in Marseille, where supporters are however demanding him on social networks. Pushed out because of his high market value, more than 15 million euros according to Pablo Longoria, the ex-Diambars striker has already let OM leaders know that he wants to stay. Can the situation change depending on the offers that Bamba Dieng will receive during the month of August? Some Premier League clubs will give it a shot, according to information from the 90 Min.
Dieng rather than Kalimuendo for Leeds?
The outlet understands that three Premier League clubs have recently shown interest in Bamba Dieng. West Ham and Newcastle interests were already known and now it’s Leeds United who have joined the race to sign the OM striker. In this position, the priority of the former club of Marcelo Bielsa is called Arnaud Kalimuendo, for whom an offer of up to 20 million euros has been sent to PSG. But the capital club is greedy and would like to recover a little more money for its striker, also coveted by Rennes or Nice. This is how Leeds activated their plan B and it leads straight to Bamba Dieng. To date, no offer has been made to the leaders of Olympique de Marseille. But during the month of August, Premier League clubs sometimes tend to panic and drop large sums of money for young players with great potential, as is the case of Dieng. At OM, we hope that this scenario will happen, even if it will be very difficult to convince the player to leave.
