Burnley and Newcastle United are in the chase for Marseille’s Bamba Dieng, according to RMC Sport.

The striker is with Senegal at the Africa Cup of Nations and found the back of the net in his country’s 2-0 win over Cape Verde on Tuesday. A month ago, he signed a new contract with the Ligue 1 side and his current deal will run down in 2024.

Despite signing the extension, the report explains Jorge Sampaoli’s side, who are in need of cash, are ‘ready to sell’ the player for ‘at least €10m’ in the winter market.

RMC Sport state English clubs have ‘returned to charge’ for Dieng and have told both his entourage and Marseille about their interest to sign the player before the window closes.

Sean Dyche’s side have recently entered the fray and have joined Newcastle. These two sides are ‘very interested’ in the frontman. The French club have not received a concrete offer so far, but RMC Sport suggest it could change in the coming days.

Dieng, for his part, is now focused on Senegal. Therefore, it doesn’t give any room for ‘last minute negotiations’, but ‘everything remains open’.

The player would like to continue with his current employer, while being aware ‘some offers may not be refused’. If Dieng were to leave, Marseille have identified Udinese’s Gerard Deulofeu as a candidate to replace him.
