Watford, Burnley and AFC Bournemouth are the clubs ‘after’ Galatasaray’s Mbaye Diagne.
That’s what Takvim are reporting and they add the forward wants to ‘pursue his career in England’ after spending the last six months on loan at West Bromwich Albion.
It’s claimed the 29-year-old is not included Galatasaray manager Fatih Terim’s plans next season and is yet to arrive in Istanbul for the pre-season preparations.
The Senegal international has received ‘special permission’ from his manager and the Süper Lig club’s board to sort out his future.
Down at Diagne’s end, his representatives have three clubs on the table, and they are the Watford, Burnley and AFC Bournemouth.
Takvim state negotiations are being carried out so that both the attacker’s salary and his club’s demand of €3-4m fee are met.
According to the report, ‘significant progress’ has been made in negotiations with Watford and Burnley, suggesting Sean Dyche’s and Xisco’s could have an advantage over Scott Parker.
There’s no mention which club is leading the race, but there’s belief a ‘positive development’ could be expected in the next 10 days.
