Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly targeting West Ham defender Issa Diop, and could be prepared to offer up to £50million to get their man.
The French centre-back has made an impressive start to life in the Premier League after moving from Toulouse in a £22m switch last summer.
And that form is said to have alerted PSG, who are keen to bolster their ranks of talented young French players and have been monitoring the 21-year-old for some time, according to the report in the Daily Mail.
The reigning Ligue 1 champions believe, however, that they could face competition from Manchester United for the player after Jose Mourinho labelled Diop a ‘monster’ when his team lost at the London Stadium earlier in the season.
Diop, who has confirmed his desire to play international football for France despite having a Moroccan mother and a Senegalese father, signed a five-year deal when he joined the Hammers in June.
