Seny Dieng – Queens Park Rangers
Someone who has been linked with Arsenal already this window, QPR’s Seny Dieng has done a fine job earning his reputation considering the poor season his side have been.
Just like with Samba, playing in a struggling side has not prevented Dieng attracting admirers, not least for his close-range shot-stopping capabilities. In 20 outings this season he’s made 61 league saves, 42 of which have come from inside the area.
Shots from distance are where he has some questions marks, but his positioning for efforts within the 18-yard area isn’t in doubt.
At just 26 years old there is plenty of scope for improved development, although the jump up to Championship level itself has come at a rapid rate. Spending last season on loan at League One Doncaster Rovers, he’s come into a poor QPR side and never looked out of place.
Starting out in his native Switzerland, Dieng has had no less than 11 clubs already, and the added bonus of him being London-based could help entice Arsenal.
Fun fact: Dieng joined the illustrious group of goalscoring goalkeepers when he poked home a header for Whitehawk in 2017.
