28-year-old former French youth international attacker M’Baye Niang is back on the market. His contract expired with Auxerre following their relegation to Ligue 2 and the end of the 2022/23 campaign and he is now looking for what would be the 11th club of his professional playing career.
According to L’Équipe, a couple of clubs have already submitted formal contract offers to the Senegalese international: newly promoted to LaLiga outfit Las Palmas and Turkish 1st division club Konyaspor, who finished 8th in the Süper Lig last season.
Serie A outfit Salernitana have also placed him on their shortlist in the event that they lose fellow Senegalese international attacker Boulaye Dia this summer. According to sources contacted by Get French Football News however, he does not sit high on their shortlist.
Niang will be hoping to find some level of stability, wherever he goes next – he knows Serie A well having had previous spells there with AC Milan, Genoa and Torino, making 107 appearances and scoring 17 goals.
