Crystal Palace have edge on West Ham in race for Marseille striker Bamba Dieng

Olympique Marseille striker Bamba Dieng is interesting West Ham and Crystal Palace.

RMC Sport says the two Premier League clubs have enquired about the 21-year-old attacker.

The Ligue 1 side are now in a position where they need to sell, and Dieng could now leave Marseille for €10m (£8m) this month, in order to help the French side balance the books.

The Senegalese forward, who is currently away at the African Cup of Nations (AFCON), netted for his country in their 2-0 victory over Cape Verde in the last 16.

Dieng, who is a product of the FC Diambars set-up in Senegal that was co-founded by Palace manager Patrick Vieira in 2000, broke into the first-team this season and has since been rewarded with a new contract.
