The French champions could offer up to £50million for the defender

By Simon Jones

Paris Saint-Germain are targeting West Ham's Issa Diop - and could be prepared to offer up to £50million for the French centre back.

Diop has made an impressive start to life in the Premier League after moving from Toulouse in a £22m deal last summer.

And Diop's form has alerted PSG, who want to bolster their ranks of talented young French players and have monitored the 21-year-old for some time.

The French champions believe they could face competition from Manchester United after Jose Mourinho hailed Diop as a 'monster' when his team lost at West Ham.

Earlier this month Diop, who has a Moroccan mother and Senegalese father, confirmed his desire to play senior international football for France.

He signed for West Ham on a five-year contract for a club-record fee in June.

“He’ll do well here” – West Ham player excited about reported agreed Hammers deal

By Lucas Sposito

Following the claims from South America saying that West Ham United have agreed a deal to sign Atlanta United star Miguel Almirón, a player from the London side was asked about it.

A show called Fútbol a lo Grande, from Paraguayan radio Monumental AM 1080, managed to speak to Hammers defender Fabian Balbuena about the transfer.

Now there are couple of quotes being published in the Paraguayan media, and although they are very similar, they come with different words.

According to Fútbol a lo Grande’s official Twitter account, Balbuena said: “We know the conditions that Miguel Almiron has, I hope everyone gets to play here,” and “I did’t know, I didn’t see the news about Miky’s transfer but I’m sure he’ll do very well here.”

Ultima Hora brings some similar quotes, in which Balbuena has said: “They did not tell me anything, I’m uninformed. But we know the quality of Miguel and he will be able to play in any team,” and “If that occurs, he will come to a great team, it will be a great opportunity.”

In any case, Balbuena seems excited with the possibility of having a national teammate at West Ham. Now just like us, he’s probably waiting for this news to be confirmed.
