According to a report from Sky Sports, West Ham boss David Moyes is prepared to sell Issa Diop this summer, but for nothing less than £45 million.

It is also suggested that at least two clubs want to sign the 6ft 4in Frenchman.

The 23-year-old joined the Hammers from Toulouse in the summer of 2018 for around £22 million (The Mirror).

Diop impressed initially during his debut season in England, but in truth he has never really kicked on from there.

The French centre-back was incredibly inconsistent last term. He seems to have all of the tools needed to be a truly exceptional centre-back, but his concentration levels and decision making left a lot to be desired.

David Moyes was brought in to help improve the Hammers’ defending in December 2019.


And Diop has since been an ever present fixture under the Scot.

Frenchman heading for the exit door?

But it seems as though the former Toulouse ace could be on his way out of the London Stadium this summer.

Sky Sports claims that West Ham could sell Diop if their £45 million valuation is met this summer.

With the global health crisis causing the east London outfit all sorts of financial problems, it is easy to see why they could be open to selling one of their prized assets.

And if West Ham are offered around £45 million for Diop, it would surely make sense for them to sell him.
