The asking price of Queens Park Rangers goalkeeper Seny Dieng has been revealed.
According to Alan Nixon’s report for The Sun on Sunday (via The 72), Mark Warburton has set the asking price for the in-demand QPR shot-stopper, whom Arsenal, Crystal Palace, Leed United and Sheffield United were all linked with this summer, at £12m.
However, Nixon continued by stating that the Rs would command a larger fee than £12m should a rival Championship side wish to sign the 26-year-old – something which is more than likely aimed at Sheffield United.
With Warburton having overseen arguably the most impressive transfer window of any Championship side this summer – with the Rs bringing in the likes of Andre Dozzell, Stefan Johansen, Charlie Austin, Jordy de Wijs, Sam Field, Sam McCallum, Andre Gray and Jimmy Dunne amongst others – as well as a rather remarkable start to QPR’s 2021/22 Championship campaign – with the club remaining unbeaten over their opening five fixtures of the season and currently sitting third in the second tier standings – things are certainly looking on the up at the Kiyan Prince Foundation stadium at present.
This is something that is only strengthened by Nixon’s recent report regarding the 58-year-old’s asking price for Dieng, as the ‘keeper has played a crucial role in the Rs’ impressive start to the new season.
These returns have seen the man Warburton himself dubbed an “outstanding” player earn an average SofaScore match rating of 7.10, ranking the 26-year-old as the club’s seventh-best performer in the second tier this term.
As such, considering how important the £4k-per-week Dieng appears to be within the QPR side, the fact that the club are not willing to let the goalkeeper leave the club unless it is for a substantial fee is sure to have left Rs fans buzzing – as it would very much seem that, if Warburton is to have any hope of securing promotion from the Championship this season, the Senegal international will play a key role in QPR doing so.
