French Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain are allegedly keen on making a move for West Ham United star Issa Diop with the player making an impressive start in the Premier League.
As per the MailOnline, Paris Saint-Germain are considering a potential swoop for the 21-year-old Diop although the defender could cost about £50million and the Ligue 1 side may face stiff competition from some top European clubs for his signature.
The Centre-back only joined Premier League side West Ham this summer from French Ligue 1 side Toulouse for a then club record fee claimed to be around £22m as per BBC Sport.
The reliable defender has played in seven of the hammers opening nine English Premier League matches and as per the Premier League’s official website, he has an impressive tackle success rate of over 73%.
The acquisition of Diop would surely fit Paris Saint-Germain’s high profile, the French Ligue 1 champions would be interested in strengthening their ranks with a France U-21 international defender.
The center defender could potentially form a formidable partnership with Presnel Kimpembe for both the French club and National team so buying Diop early in his football career could prove to be a fantastic move from Paris Saint-Germain.
Paris Saint-Germain could face stiff competition with Premier League giants Manchester United as manager Jose Mourinho hailed the starlet, labeling him a ‘beast’ after West Ham defeated the Red Devils 3-1 in September in a Premier League encounter.
Without a doubt, the future is looking extremely bright for the France Under-21 international defender Issa Diop.
