West Ham United boss David Moyes wants to bring former Everton star Idrissa Gana Gueye back to the Premier League.
Mystery ‘agent’ claims Chinese also want West Ham, legend brokering deals, says owners will sell soon
Gueye left Everton to join Paris Saint Germain for £30million last summer.
The defensive midfielder, 30, enjoyed a good first season with Thomas Tuchel’s side – racking up 34 appearances in all competitions and helping his side win the Ligue 1 title and reach the Champions League final.
West Ham want Kante lite – report
Dubbed N’Golo Kante lite during his time in the Premier League, Gueye would undoubtedly be a massive improvement on West Ham’s current midfield options.
Le10Sport claim that West Ham are being rivalled by Crystal Palace with co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold under pressure to make signings.
Currently West Ham are the only team in the entire Premier League not to have brought in a new face this summer.
The unpopular duo have been pleading poverty due to the global health crisis.
Could West Ham aim for loan with option to buy?
But West Ham’s Premier League rivals are set to take spending over the £1 billion mark.
What PSG value Gueye at is unclear. He is on £110,000 per week in Paris (Le10Sports).
West Ham may be looking to secure a loan deal with an option to buy.
Could Gueye replace Wilshere?
And that could explain why West Ham are so keen to get Jack Wilshere’s £100,000 per week wages off the books.
Injury-prone Wilshere has made just 18 appearances in over two years at West Ham.
West Ham have just three weeks to make signings before the window slams shut on October 5th.
Many supporters believe the club will be embroiled in another relegation battle this season.
And they don’t hold out much hope of survival if reinforcements are not forthcoming.
