West Ham United are allegedly leading the race to sign talented Olympiacos centre-back Pape Abou Cisse this summer.
That’s according to a report from London World who claim that the Hammers could sign the 26-year-old defender for around £15 million in the summer transfer window.
It appears as though Moyes is intent on bolstering his central defensive department further still, however.
And it’s little wonder why.
Angelo Ogbonna and Craig Dawson are 34 and 32 respectively now and the former spent the majority of last season out with an ACL injury.
In addition to that, Issa Diop is facing an uncertain future at the London Stadium (Claret and Hugh). So it is really little wonder why Moyes may want to sign another centre-back this summer…
West Ham leading race to sign Pape Abou Cisse
London World reckon that the Hammers are in pole position to snare the 26-year-old centre-back from Olympiacos this summer.
We will allegedly have to pay around £15 million to get a deal done for the 12-capped Senegal international.
We think that Cisse would be a decent acquisition for West Ham for that kind of fee.
Standing at 6ft 6in tall, the Senegalese ace is an absolute giant and has been described as a brick wall by 360 Edition.
For such a big man, he has decent pace as well.
In seven Europa League appearances for Olympiacos last season, Cisse averaged 2.1 tackles, 1.6 interceptions and 4.4 clearances per game. He also won an average of two aerial duels per match (Who Scored).
The Olympiacos ace seems to have the total package.
Selling Diop and signing the 26-year-old would be a smart move from David Moyes this summer in my opinion.
And if West Ham do manage to bring Pape Abou Cisse to the London Stadium this summer, we believe that we will be in great shape defensively next season, with Nayef Aguerd now on board as well.
