West Ham and Wolves both want to sign Djibril Sidibe this summer, according to a report from 90 Min.
And the Hammers are allegedly leading the Black Country outfit in the race for the 18-capped France international’s signature.
West Ham boss David Moyes could really do with bringing a new right-back to the London Stadium this summer.
And the same could be said of Nuno Espirito Santo at Molineux.
And 90 Min claims that the Hammers and Wolves are battling it out for Monaco ace Djibril Sidibe.
The 28-year-old spent last season on loan in the Premier League with Everton.
Sidibe racked up four assists in 25 Premier League games for the Toffees. In those outings, he averaged 3.3 tackles, 1.6 interceptions, 1.3 clearances and 1.2 dribbles (Who Scored).
They are really impressive numbers for someone who was experiencing their debut season in the Premier League. So it is clear that Sidibe is capable of handling the rigours of the English game.
The France international could clearly be a big upgrade on Ryan Fredericks for West Ham.
And he would provide brilliant competition for Ki-Jana Hoever at Wolves.
90 Min claims that Monaco are prepared to send Sidibe out on loan again this summer, but only if an obligation to buy is included in the deal. Let’s just hope we can get this one over the line because the 26-year-old Frenchman would be a truly exceptional addition for us.
