It was only a couple of seasons ago that Seny Dieng was gaining experience at Dundee – now the likes of Arsenal and Crystal Palace are after him.

The 26-year-old has become QPR’s number one this term and has impressed with his displays for Mark Warburton’s side. It’s now been widely reported that Arsenal, Crystal Palace and Leeds United are after him.

Dieng has kept four clean sheets in his 20 league appearances this season and although Warburton’s men sit two points outside of the relegation zone, he has been one of their better players this term.

Arsenal, Crystal Palace and Leeds are all looking to strengthen their goalkeeping options to provide competition to their number one choices.  Runar Alex Runarsson is Arsenal’s current back-up, Jack Butland Crystal Palace’s while Leeds have 20-year-old Illan Meslier as their number one.


All of them are monitoring Dieng’s progress, who has enjoyed a fast rise after a couple of loan spells away from Loftus Road. His last one was with Doncaster Rovers but there was also a spell at Dundee.

Making 18 appearances while at Dens Park in the 2018/19 season, Dieng impressed during his short Tayside stint. It wasn’t to end brilliantly for him though, not able to keep a clean sheet as Dundee were relegated.

But since then he has shone on further loan adventures before establishing himself at QPR this term. Now a move as high as Arsenal and Crystal Palace could await him next.
