The DR Congo prospect joined the Bundesliga outfit from Paris Saint-Germain in 2019, and has since developed into a quality player.

According to RMC Sport, the Ligue 1 club are ready to sell the 21-year-old if their £8 million price tag is met.

Dieng has scored four goals in the French top-flight this season and he also has a goal to his name at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

The DR Congo international has played 14 games for the Portuguese club in this campaign and he is reportedly attracting interest from Adana Demirspor as well.
