Un club passe sérieusement à l’action pour Bamba Dieng?


Pushed out by Pablo Longoria, Bamba Dieng is tracked by Benfica. The Portuguese club highly appreciates his profile according to information from Foot Mercato.

Olympique de Marseille blew up Bamba Dieng as soon as he signed. Nasser Larguet trusted him during a Coupe de France match against Auxerre and since then the Senegalese has impressed with his fast and sharp profile.

Benfica want Dieng?

Pushed out by Pablo Longoria, the striker has no intention of leaving OM. According to La Provence, he would rather intend to impose himself there and become number 1 in the hierarchy.

This does not prevent certain clubs from positioning themselves. According to information from Foot Mercato, his profile interests Benfica who recently lost Darwin Nunez. The Uruguayan left a void in this position by leaving for Liverpool. Benfica is not against the arrival of the Senegalese on loan with an obligatory purchase option of 12 million euros. OM would rather expect a dry transfer and 15M€.

Dieng is still young, we must stop this transfer and keep him – Hernandez

A decision that does not delight everyone. A few weeks ago the guest of the Apéro Mercato, Christophe Hernandez, winner of the Gambardella Cup in 2012 with Nice, profiled Bamba Dieng, a player, according to him, that OM absolutely must not sell.

“Dieng? It’s a profile that we don’t have for me, it takes up space, it’s not always pretty to see, it’s different from what we can have, especially the latest attackers like Benedetto or Milik , which are support forwards. We were sold Milik as a player who makes a lot of calls, but what I did not see especially in the last game for me. Dieng is still young, there is a project at Olympique de Marseille which I hope will last, so no, we have to stop this transfer and keep it. We don’t have a potential that will dribble 5, 6 players, make us the difference in each game. We have a player who is capable of doing good things for us, but we don’t have a player like Ousmane Dembélé when he was younger. (On the comparison with Ekitike) I find him more complete than Dieng, especially when he wins without the ball, he plays in one touch, he will ask for it again then, he is able to keep the ball. Bamba Dieng is not yet able to do so. (On the hypothesis of a departure from Dieng) What is the project of Olympique de Marseille, what do we intend to do? What recruitment do we want to do? It’s good to let go of a Bamba Dieng who has qualities of his own, at OM, we have a lot of players who like to touch the ball in the feet in small spaces, even our side players like Under who like to touch the ball goes in on his left foot. On the economic form, I agree but if I speak purely football, as an enthusiast, who are we going to recruit? Who is capable of taking depth in this squad? If tomorrow Sampaoli decides to recruit two real full-backs and he wants to play in 3-5-2 who can help our striker Milik by taking the spaces. » Christopher Hernandez – Source: Marseille Football Club (31/05/2022)
