Great hope of Senegalese football, Samba Diallo could join AS Saint-Étienne. Under contract with Dynamo kyiv since last summer, Samba Diallo, like all football players in the region caught up in the war, must bounce back to a new club. An opportunity that the big clubs of Europe could have seized, OM, Barça or Dortmund would already be on the spot.
A small 18-year-old left winger trained in the Darou Salam club in central Senegal, Samba Diallo was followed last year by many European clubs to finally sign a 5-year contract with Dynamo kyiv. A personal choice, he says.
Holder with the U19 of the Ukrainian champions, he has produced excellent performances, scoring 5 goals in 7 Youth League games this year, including a double against Barcelona. The current worrying situation in Ukraine has, however, led to a special FIFA provision allowing players to sign freely with new clubs until the end of the season. A reform that helps.
International in the young teams of Senegal U20, Samba Diallo could however land under other skies because he is followed by big European clubs. Borussia Dortmund, Barcelona or OM, in France, would also be in the running. Tough competition also for Saint-Etienne, which for the moment has welcomed him to its training center.
But according to the staff, his contract with kyiv still being valid for the future, Samba Diallo could favor a club like Saint-Étienne, capable of offering him playing time until the end of the season, rather than risking himself. to sit in a club at the top of the European table.
Currently 18th in the French championship, ASSE is in a good phase and finally aligns the good results but the club must strengthen its attack. It would therefore be a great challenge for the young Senegalese allowing him to continue his progress or even hope to join the first team of the Lions of Teranga.
