Southampton moving for Marseille striker Bamba Dieng

Southampton are moving for Marseille striker Bamba Dieng.

The Daily Express says Southampton are exploring the forward's situation as Nathan Jones seeks to add "more potency" to his underperforming frontline.

Interestingly, Marseille are attempting to offer Dieng as part of a player-plus-cash deal for Lorient striker Terem Moffi, who has also attracted interest from West Ham this window.

Marseille have recently held talks with Dieng's representatives over a new contract but there has been no agreement to date and now he could depart the French giants before the January window slams shut.

Dieng was the story of transfer deadline day last summer after coming close to joining both Leeds and Nice before both deals collapsed in the final stages.
