Report: West Ham strongly linked with Senegalese striker

West Ham could make a late bid for Metz striker Habib Diallo before the transfer window closes tomorrow. Chelsea are reported to have have offered £17 million for the 24-year-old forward earlier this month.

Leicester City, Newcastle United and Spurs have also been linked with the Senegalese international. The young striker has scored 10 goals in 19 appearances for Metz this season and scored 26  last season to inspire Metz’s promotion to Ligue 1.

The goalscorer earned his first Senegal call-up in 2018 and has one goal in four caps for his country. Earlier this month the Sun suggested the player was strongly linked to West Ham in addition to Chelsea.

Metz coach Vincent Hognon says Senegal forward Habib Diallo will not leave the French Ligue 1 club in the January transfer window amid interest from some Premier League clubs.

Hognon insists his forward is not leaving the club in January, seven months after he extended his Metz contract which now runs to 2022.

“I have never been told about the departure of Habib Diallo this winter,” Hognon was quoted as saying by Lequipe.

  1. Another player link 😀 LOL

  2. Well it’s a safe bet that if three other clubs are interested we won’t get him. The striker situation is a real worry. I think a key factor in relegation is lack of goals scored. I keep hoping Moyes will find a way to get Haller scoring & I think Antonio playing definitely helps. But how many games will he play…

    • Totally agree, and the Antonio situation is getting to be a real concern with him only being able to play 45 – 60 minutes every othr game

    • Totally agree & the Antonio situation is getting to be a real concern with him only being able to play 45 – 60 mins every other game

  3. Is there any word on how long it will be before Silva is fit. Could be the answer to have someone like him alongside Haller and will leave Antonio to play in his best position on the wing.

  4. We need Anderson back. I reckon Moyes can get him pulling the strings and creating and scoring again

  5. Totally agree, and the Antonio situation is getting to be a real concern with him only being able to play 45 – 60 minutes every othr game
