Left aside by Igor Tudor at Olympique de Marseille, Bamba Dieng sees his future darken in the south of France. In case of departure, the young Senegalese will find his happiness in the Premier League where many clubs are interested in his arrival.
Divorce between Bamba Dieng and OM
Pablo Longoria: « We must remember the values of modern sport »
The last Senegalese striker to break the glass ceiling of the Premier League was named Sadio Mané, recently left for Bayern Munich. Will the next one be Bamba Dieng? We hope so for the 22-year-old center forward who is coming out of a season with eight goals and three assists with OM. Current relations between the African champion last season and Igor Tudor are more than cold. The proof since during the preseason, the young Marseille nugget did not have a single minute of playing time to eat in the last four games. To note that Pablo Longoria did not reassure his little protege at a press conference on Wednesday. » In football, there is no past, now is the next game. We know the player, we know he has real talent, value. But we have to remember the values of modern sport”. Under contract with his club until June 2024, Bamba Dieng can aspire to a departure especially after the arrival in attack of Luis Suarez and certainly very soon of Alexis Sanchez… It is not the suitors who miss his arrival.

Six Premier League clubs are following the case
Yes, Bamba Dieng pleases on the other side of the Channel. According to the latest information revealed by 90minit’s jostling for the Marseille striker. Leeds, West Ham, Newcastle, Everton, Crystal Palace or Wolverhampton looked into the case of Bamba Dieng. An interest that had already leaked this winter during the transfer window when the Senegalese had declined the interests of the Hammers and the Toffees. At that time, the latter still had playing time but this time with Jorge Sampaoli where the Argentinian made him play 33 games in 2021/2022 including 17 as a starter. Since then, the situation has completely changed. In case of departure in Premier LeagueBamba Dieng would not be completely out of place since a good number of his teammates play in the English championship: Kalidou Koulibaly and Édouard Mendy (Chelsea), Cheikhou Kouyaté (Crystal Palace), Nampalys Mendy (Leicester).
