EXCLUSIVE By Pete O’Rourke
Rangers are in the hunt to sign Queens Park Rangers goalkeeper Seny Dieng, Football Insider understands.
Dieng has come to the attention of Rangers after impressing on loan at Dundee during the second half of this season.
The 24-year-old was one of Dundee’s shining lights during his loan spell, despite the club suffering relegation from the Scottish Premiership.
Dieng is out of contract at QPR next month and a Rangers source has told Football Insider he has been offered a new deal but has yet to agree anything alerting them and other clubs to his potential availability on a free transfer this summer.
Rangers are in the market for goalkeeping reinforcements this summer with current No.2 Wes Foderingham expected to move on and Dieng has emerged on their list of targets.
League One side Shrewsbury Town along with Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem, French outfit Strasbourg and American team Minnesota United are also weighing up moves for Dieng if he becomes a free agent.
The athletic shot-stopper has yet to make his first-team debut for QPR, but he made 34 appearances this season during his loan spells at Stevenage and Dundee.
