OM Market: Bamba Dieng rejects Antwerp (Belgium)
What future for the young Senegalese talent Bamba Dieng ? Pushed towards the exit by the arrival of Igor Tudor at the head of Olympique de Marseille, the 22-year-old center forward seemed close to finding a base at the end of the transfer window, under an incredible soap opera. Initially in agreement with FC Lorient, the player had finally succumbed to the advances of Leeds in the Premier League, who had even chartered him a plane, before turning back. Eager to perfect his progress in France, the African champion then decided, this time forever, to join the teamOGC Nice, who had made an important offer to the OM to attract their striker. This is without counting an unsuccessful medical examination, which saw the player fail during tests for an anomaly detected in the knee. If then the idea of a counter-visit was studied, Marseille finally closed the doors to a departure from Dieng for the rival of the Riviera.
Chaotic situation for the young center forward, who however holds several keys in some leagues, where the transfer window is still open. And precisely, according to information from The groupthe player would receive advances from the clubAntwerp in the Jupiler Pro League. But Bamba Dieng eventually decided to reject this proposal. A strong choice by the Senegalese, who would, in fact, have agreed to stay at Olympique de Marseille.

According to information from Provence, Bamba Dieng is not expected to respond to various offers from exotic leagues. If the Portuguese, Turkish or Saudi championships still keep the markets open, the player should not run the risk of leaving for a destination that he did not want to reach as a base, a few months before the World Cup. An explosive choice by the attacker, who risks being deprived of playing time until the next winter transfer market. Blocked at the top by Luis Suarez or Alessio Sanchezthe young center forward has not yet been called up by Tudor since the second half, a trend that is not destined to change from the World Cup.
