Kasimpasa striker Mbaye Diagne has attracted growing interest after an impressive season at the Super Lig outfit.

Diagne’s agent Ediz Balkan revealed to Turkish-Football that Bournemouth, Reading and Hull City are locked in the race for the striker.

Talks will be held through agents in Belgium today between the club representatives, Balkan and Claudio Mossio where offer proposals will be made for Balkan to take back to Kasimpasa.

A meeting has been scheduled with the Super Lig outfit on Monday to discuss the offers made.

Kasimpasa are willing to sell for the right price.

The Senegalese striker has 12 months left on his contract but the Super Lig side do have the option to extend by an additional season.

The Istanbul based side will discuss all their options in the Monday meeting.

Diagne had an impressive campaign in Turkey after joining Kasimpasa from TJ Teda on a free transfer in January.

The 26-year-old scored 12 times in 17 appearances for the Istanbul based outfit, impressing scouts.

Diagne does also have interest from Real Sociedad and from sides in the Arab Gulf.

The striker was snapped up by Juventus in 2013 before a loan move to AC Ajaccio, Lierse, Shabab and Westerlo.

The 1.93m tall forward was sold to Ujpest in 2015 before a transfer to Chinese outfit TJ Teda in February 2016 and finally returned back to Europe last January.

Kasimpasa finished the 2017-18 campaign in 8th place, scoring 57 goals in 34 league games.
