Man Utd outcast Eric Bailly wanted by West Ham in summer transfer as David Moyes looks to bring in Issa Diop replacement


WEST HAM are reportedly weighing up an offer to bring Manchester United outcast Eric Bailly to the London Stadium.

The Hammers are on the lookout for a new centre-back with Issa Diop on the verge of joining newly-promoted side Fulham.

French star Diop is believed to be closing in on a five-year deal at Craven Cottage in his quest to play first team football.

And David Moyes will now press ahead with bringing in a replacement for the 25-year-old, with it claimed they could complete a transfer this week.

According to talkSPORT, the East London outfit have identified Ivory Coast international Bailly and Paris Saint-Germain’s Thilo Kehrer as potential options.

West Ham are keen to wrap up a deal fast ahead of Sunday’s trip to Nottingham Forest.

Both Bailly and Kehrer are surplus to requirements at their respective clubs.

The pair were left out of their club’s opening matchday squad of the season last weekend.

Kehrer would be available on a cut-price deal having entered the final 12 months of his contract at Parc des Princes.

Meanwhile Bailly, who has two years left on his contract at Old Trafford, isn’t in Erik ten Hag’s plans with Harry Maguire, Lisandro Martinez, Raphael Varane and Victor Lindelof ahead of him in the pecking order.

West Ham aren’t the only team interested in prising Bailly away from the Theatre of Dreams before the transfer window slams shut.

Get French Football News have declared that Ligue 1 outfit Monaco are looking to secure his services.

Jose Mourinho has also been linked with a reunion with Bailly at Roma having already signed his ex-United team-mate Nemanja Matic earlier this summer.

And SunSport exclusively revealed earlier this month how Spanish side Sevilla were keeping tabs on his situation at United.
