Report: West Ham and Atletico Madrid to battle it out for £13.5m Bouna Sarr

According to a report from French media outlet Foot Mercato, West Ham could sign Marseille ace Bouna Sarr this summer for just €15 million (£13.5 million), but they will face competition from Atletico Madrid for his signature.

Hammers boss David Moyes will be desperate to bring a new right-back to the London Stadium this summer.

Pablo Zabaleta will definitely be leaving West Ham at the end of this season, whilst Jeremy Ngakia will almost certainly depart east London.

Meanwhile, Ryan Fredericks has failed to deliver since joining the club on a free transfer in the summer of 2018.

And Foot Mercato claims that the Hammers are eyeing a swoop for £13.5 million-rated Marseille star Bouna Sarr. Although they could face competition from Spanish giants Atletico Madrid for his signature.

And the 28-year-old would be a very strong addition for West Ham.

Stats

In 27 Ligue 1 outings for Marseille this season, the French right-back has racked up one goal and three assists (Who Scored).

During those appearances, Sarr has averaged 2.2 tackles, 1.2 interceptions, 1.3 clearances and 0.9 dribbles per game (Who Scored).

The Marseille ace in an attacking full-back in every sense. He seems to be ideally suited to the Premier League. The pacy defender would certainly provide strong competition for Ryan Fredericks at the London Stadium.

And for £13.5 million, the 28-year-old would be a real steal for West Ham.

The Hammers will have their work cut-out, however, if they are to beat Atleti to Sarr’s signature this summer.
