French giants Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly interested in making a move for West Ham’s Issa Diop with the 21-year-old making an impressive start to life in the Premier League.
According to the MailOnline, PSG are weighing up a potential move for Diop although the centre-back could cost up to £50m and PSG may face some competition for his signature.
Diop only joined the Hammers this summer from Toulouse for a then club record fee reported to be £22m according to BBC Sport.
Diop has played in seven of West Ham’s opening nine Premier League fixtures and according to the Premier League’s official site, Diop has a impressive tackle success rate of 73%.
The signing of Diop would certainly fit PSG’s profile, the French champions would be keen to bolster their ranks with a France Under-21 international.
Diop could potentially build a formidable partnership with the likes of Presnel Kimpembe for both club and country so signing Diop early in his career could prove to be a shrewd move from PSG.
PSG could face competition with Manchester United as Jose Mourinho hailed the youngster, labelling him a monster after West Ham defeated United 3-1 last month.
The future is looking bright for Diop.
