Hull City are being linked with a move for Kasimpasa striker Mbaye Diagne, as reported by The72 yesterday.
The rumours have now been fuelled by the fact the 26-year-old striker has now followed Hull’s official account on Instagram.
The Tigers have made four signings so far this summer but are looking to make it five and six today with them hoping to conclude deals for Chelsea right-back Todd Kane and Sheffield United goalkeeper George Long.
They are not stopping there either and their manager, Nigel Adkins, is very keen to bring a striker to the KCOM Stadium this summer. They have been linked with Barnsley’s Tom Bradshaw in the past but Kasimpasa’s Mbaye Diagne is now a reported target.
The 6ft 3inc striker has impressed Hull fans with his goal scoring record so far in his career. He has played all over the world and managed 6 goals in 12 games for Lierse in the Belgian top flight, 11 in 14 for Újpest in Hungary, 15 in 44 for Tianjin in China and most recently 12 in 17 for Kasimpasa in the Turkish Super Lig.
These statistic have excited the Tigers’ fans on Twitter and they are hoping their club can seal a deal for the prolific front-man. Here is how their fans have reacted to the links with Mbaye Diagne-

Oof would not be against the idea of this with Kane coming in as well, if this happens just need Kane another full back, central midfielder as well as another winger possibly 2 depending on what happens with Kamil #hcafc https://t.co/Mje5ApVam5

Diomande had an awesome scoring record before he came to City, and now has a awesome scoring record where he is now. Proschwitz was known to be lethal before joining City…
