Report: West Ham want Abdou Diallo with PSG open to £17m sale

West Ham are one of the clubs who want to sign Abdou Diallo, with Paris Saint-Germain ready to sell the centre-back this summer, according to a report from Media Foot.

The Hammers’ summer kicked into another gear this week with the announcement that they have signed Gianluca Scamacca.

It was a real statement of intent from David Moyes’s side. But the fans will hope that there are plenty more new signings to come in the coming weeks.

And one player they have their eye on is Diallo. According to Media Foot, PSG are ready to sell the Senegal international for a fee of around £17 million.

Meanwhile, there is also interest from Rennes after they sold Nayef Aguerd to the Hammers earlier in the window.

West Ham want Abdou Diallo

The injury to Aguerd appears to have prompted West Ham to get stuck into the market once again to sign a new centre-back.

Diallo has never quite been able to make himself a regular in the PSG side. But he has been a decent signing for the club. And he was previously with Borussia Dortmund.

The 26-year-old has been described as a very ‘intelligent‘ defender. He is good on the ball and likes to drive out from the back. But he is also not afraid to get stuck in.

His asking price should certainly appeal to the Irons. Obviously, it is still a reasonable sum. But his arrival would probably not eat up all of the Hammers’ budget, by any means.

It would be a gamble to let the window close without a new defender coming in now that Aguerd is injured. So perhaps it would be little surprise to see West Ham make a bid for Diallo in the near future.
