ExWHUemployee has claimed that West Ham United might reconsider going in for Bamba Dieng this summer.
Dieng was in impressive form last season for Olympique Marseille, he featured 25 times in Ligue 1 where he scored seven goals and chipped in with three assists, at just 22 years old.
With West Ham being linked to Dieng this summer, ExWHUemployee claimed that his current side have said that he can leave and he is a player worth keeping an eye on for the Hammers this summer.
“Another player worth keeping an eye on is Bamba Dieng of Marseille. The forward can play across the front line and we have had an interest in him before. It is rumoured that his club have said he can leave. Whilst I don’t believe we have made any moves for him now, he is someone that Moyes might reconsider,” Ex said.
Should West Ham go in for Dieng?
TIF Thoughts on Ex’s comments…
Dieng, who has been called one of the potential ‘bargains of the summer’, is a 22-year-old that can play anywhere across the front three but have featured primarily down the middle for Marseille, so he can provide competition/backup for Michail Antonio and new signing Gianluca Scamacca.
The Hammers were also short on options out wide, but David Moyes opted to bring in Maxwel Cornet, so again Dieng could provide much-needed cover in that area of the pitch for West Ham.
West Ham have made five additions this summer, but after a defeat on the opening day of the season against Manchester City, Moyes might feel like he wants to make a few more signings before the transfer window shuts, and with Ex claiming that his current club have said that he can leave, Dieng could be a suitable option.
