For lovers of the transfer window and rebounding soap operas, OM striker Bamba Dieng is a treat. Already last summer, during his real fake transfer to Leeds then to Nice, the 22-year-old Senegalese striker took everyone on the wrong foot (including himself) and ended up forced and forced to stay in Marseille. after the end of the summer transfer window. This had generated a complicated first part of the season despite a rather successful World Cup on an individual basis with Senegal (1 goal in 4 matches).
A more favorable context at the end of the year had even hinted at the idea of a contract extension.

Late at night, the situation had not changed and on the side of Marseille, we began to strongly doubt the feasibility of the operation.
If the Moffi deal does not happen, OM are very seriously considering questioning the signing of Bamba Dieng in Lorient, even though an agreement has been reached with Lorient. It must be said that the English clubs (starting with Everton and Southampton as we mentioned yesterday in our live Twitch) are still on the lookout for OM No. 12 and are ready to draw an offer at least equivalent to that of Lorient, or even higher. Of course, at the speed at which this file is evolving, there is no indication that this situation will still be like this in a few hours. To be continued in the next episode…
