Hammers await news after £17.5m Diop bid

13th June 2018, 15:00 by Simon Barlow

West Ham have reportedly made a £17.5million bid for Toulouse's talented young centre-back Issa Diop, but other teams are also keen.

L'Equipe claim the Hammers have 'formulated an offer' of between 15-20m euros, which works out as somewhere between £13m and £17.5m at the current exchange rate.

Toulouse have yet to respond to the offer but the Ligue 1 club must be tempted if the figures quoted by the French sports daily are correct.

Diop, a France Under-21 international, found it tough going last season as a regular in Toulouse's line-up as Les Violets finished 18th in the table and suffered relegation from the top flight.

The report claims there is also interest from Sevilla, Everton, Fulham and RB Leipzig in the giant 21-year-old, who has two years left on his contract in France.
