‘Would be a class signing’: Some Wolves fans excited by links to £67k-a-week defender at PL club

Wolverhampton Wanderers are being linked with West Ham defender Issa Diop – and some Wolves fans on Twitter are excited by the transfer speculation. 

Foot Mercato reports that Wolves are one of three clubs interested in the 24-year-old this summer.

It is understood that Wolves, Crystal Palace and Southampton are all keen on the centre-back at Premier League rivals West Ham.

The report explains some have failed with a bid of an initial loan with an option to purchase. However, any deal is not completely dead yet.

Wolves manager Bruno Lage is inheriting a squad at Molineux Stadium where he could perhaps do with an extra reinforcement in the heart of defence. 


Diop, 24, is someone who joined West Ham three years ago, so he’s already got some decent Premier League experience. 

The £67,000-a-week centre-back has great pace, athleticism and power in his defending. But, it’s worth pointing out his decision-making can still be a little questionable.

Wolves fans optimistic about Issa Diop pursuit

A selection of Wolves supporters on social media believe West Ham’s centre-half can improve them.

He’s a dominant defender when on his A-game, so it would be interesting to know how much he would cost in this window.

The Frenchman only made 18 league appearances last season due to some time on the bench, but David Moyes’ XI were flying at one point with Angelo Ogbonna and Craig Dawson at the back.

Here are some Wolves fans discussing Diop:
