Starting out in the depths of French football with the likes of ASM Belfort, Epinal, and Gazélec Ajaccio, Famara Diedhiou reached the second-tier in France aged 21. 

Joining Gazélec Ajaccio in the summer of 2014, Diedhiou went on to make his debut in early August, before opening his account for the Ligue 2 outfit later that month. 

Midway through that season, the towering forward joined Clermont-Foot on loan, who were operating in the same division as his parent club at the time. 

Diedhiou netted twice in 14 games with his new side, who eventually took him on temporarily for the season after.

1) Who is Bristol City's all-time leading goalscorer?

This was a much more productive spell for the forward, with Diedhiou scoring 22 times in 37 games.

Alerting the higher division with an excellent goalscoring record that season, Ligue 1 club Angers paid just shy of £1.4 million for the front man’s services.

He proceeded to score eight times in 31 games in his debut season at top-flight level, with Bristol City then swooping in ahead of the 2017/18 campaign with a £5.3 million offer.

Diedhiou netted 13 Championship goals in his first season in England, reaching that same total the following campaign.

He then managed one lower the next season, with the 2020/21 campaign proving to be his lowest yet with a total of eight.

In the summer, the 28-year-old joined Turkish club Alanyaspor, scoring twice in his opening seven matches. 

On the international stage, Diedhiou has scored five times in 10 games for Senegal, with the latest goals coming from a hat-trick in an African Cup of Nations qualifier against Eswatini.
