Khouma El Hadji Babacar (born 17 March 1993) is a Senegalese footballer who plays for Italian club ACF Fiorentina as a striker.

Club career

Born in Thiès, Babacar began his career in the academy of US Rail in his hometown. Two years later, aged only 14, he moved to Italy and signed with Delfino Pescara 1936 after a successful trial.[1]

In July 2008 Babacar signed with another club in the country, ACF Fiorentina,[2] after also being highly tracked by another Serie A side, Genoa CFC.[1] In the 2009–10 season he began training with the first team, coached by Cesare Prandelli.

On 14 January 2010, at the age of 16 years and 10 months, Babacar made his official debut for the Viola, starting against A.C. Chievo Verona for the season's Coppa Italia[3] and scoring the 2–2 equalizer in the 75th minute of an eventual 3–2 home win. On 20 March he scored his first league goal, netting the third in a 3–0 home success over Genoa.[4]
