FC Metz star Habib Diallo has just scored a wonderful header for Senegal in their Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Congo this evening.
The 24-year-old striker rose highest at the near post after an inch-perfect cross from Liverpool superstar Sadio Mane to head the ball into the back of the net.
Diallo has scored eight goals in 13 Ligue 1 games for a side that are relegation candidates. The forward looks like a serious talent and he’s starting to attract interest from the Premier League.
According to Team Talk, Chelsea and Tottenham are among a number of clubs who are said to have scouted him in recent weeks, with Watford and Norwich City also mentioned.
Team Talk add that the ace is valued at around £10m.
Take a look at Diallo’s lovely header below:

If Diallo continues to showcase his prolific nature in the next month, he may have a chance to move to the Premier League in the January transfer window as some teams will desperately look to rescue their seasons by bolstering their squads.
