West Ham United want Abdou Diallo just weeks after Tottenham Hotspur backed away from a deal for the Paris Saint-Germain defender.

The Hammers are set to sell defender Issa Diop to Fulham after weeks of rumours about his future.

That will leave West Ham needing more defensive reinforcements though, especially with new signing Nayef Aguerd out through injury.

David Moyes may even need two centre backs before the window closes and West Ham have a couple of targets in mind.

West Ham United want Abdou Diallo

Foot Mercato now report that one of those targets is Paris Saint-Germain’s Abdou Diallo.

It’s stated that West Ham have drawn up a list of potential replacements for Diop and Diallo features on it.

Diallo, 26, emerged as a real talent with Mainz before joining Borussia Dortmund back in 2018.

Paris Saint-Germain pounced just a year later, viewing Diallo as a valuable squad player who could feature at left back and left-sided centre back.

Diallo has played 75 times for PSG but seemingly isn’t in the plans of new boss Christophe Galtier.

This isn’t the first time Diallo has been linked with a move to London this summer.

RMC Sport reported earlier in the window that Tottenham wanted to sign Diallo with the idea of him playing on the left of Antonio Conte’s back three.

Yet when PSG demanded around £25million for Diallo’s signature, Tottenham backed away and signed Barcelona’s Clement Lenglet on loan instead.

That means Diallo is still stuck at PSG and West Ham now be able to swoop in and secure his signature.

West Ham have decent ties to PSG having loaned and then signed Alphonse Areola, and that could help grease the wheels so to speak, as they look to succeed where Tottenham didn’t with a move for Diallo.
