That’s £7 million cheaper than what Barca were demanding for the 21-year-old in January.

The Guardian claimed that the Hammers were chasing the Senegal international six months ago, but a loan deal with an option to buy him for £16 million collapsed at the last minute.

Moyes will be desperate to bolster his right-back department at the London Stadium this summer.

The Daily Star reported just last month that West Ham could yet again move for Wague at the end of the season.

And Radio Catalunya now claims that the Barcelona ace could be available for just £9 million – a real bargain in this day and age.

 

Hot prospect

The 21-year-old eventually joined Ligue 1 outfit Nice on deadline day in January, but due to the global health crisis, he only played five games for them.

Barcelona obviously had very high hopes for Wague when they signed him two years ago, with the Daily Mail claiming that the Catalan giants inserted a £90 million release clause into the right-back’s contract at the Camp Nou.

It seems as though the Senegalese starlet just needs to move somewhere where he will be given regular first-team football.

And West Ham could be the ideal place for him to do just that. He would also be the perfect addition for the Hammers.

The Barca ace would undoubtedly be an upgrade on Ryan Fredericks, that goes without saying.

And if David Moyes manages to sign Wague for just £9 million, the 21-year-old could end being an absolute steal for the east London outfit.
