  • Fulham have held talks with Marseille over a move for striker Bamba Dieng 
  • The 22-year-old caught attention after scoring seven goals in Ligue 1 last year
  • Marco Silva’s side have already made seven signings in the summer window 

Newly-promoted Fulham have held initial talks with Marseille for striker Bamba Dieng.

The Cottagers are in need of attacking reinforcements following the injury to loan signing Manor Solomon and Dieng is seen as a suitable option.

Marco Silva’s side have already made five permanent deals and two loan additions in preparation for the Premier League season ahead, but their summer business is far from done.

Dieng has caught the eye of Scottish champions Celtic, but that hasn’t stopped Fulham from expressing their interest in the forward.

The 22-year-old played a significant role in Marseille securing a second place finish in the league last season, contributing with seven goals in Ligue 1.

 The Senegalese forward would join João Palhinha, Issa Diop, Andreas Pereira, Kevin Mbabu, Bernd Leno, Shane Duffy and Solomon as Marco Silva’s new recruits for the season.

 Meanwhile,  Fulham are also set to sign former Chelsea and Arsenal midfielder Willian, after the Brazilian’s contract with Corinthians was terminated on Wednesday, according to reports.

Willian’s deal at his boyhood club, who he joined from Arsenal last summer, was cancelled after Corinthians’ Copa Libertadores quarter-final exit to Flamengo 3-0 on aggregate.

The 34-year-old had agreed a two-year-deal with the Brazilian side before Wednesday’s premature termination after just a year.
