Paris Saint-Germain preparing move for Issa Diop

When it comes to the transfer market, Paris Saint-Germain are simply one of the best in the business.

British source report Paris Saint-Germain are preparing move for West Ham defender Issa Diop.

The 21-year-old has five years left on his current contract which expires in 2023.

Issa Diop has played 10 times for West Ham since signing from Toulouse, scoring one goal.

The 21-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in France.

Issa Diop has represented France at Under-16, Under-17, Under-18, Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 level, winning 39 caps and scoring 3 goals.

The France international has impressed in the Premier League this season and is starting to attract the interest of bigger clubs.

The report claims that PSG manager has extensively scouted Diop and is considering a move for the defender.

Thomas Tuchel will reportedly be handed a huge transfer kitty this winter and the West Ham defender is thought to be among the manager’s priorities.

Issa Diop has the talent to play many roles in defense.

According to The Sun, “The French champions are ready to offer up to £50million to land the defender and add to their squad which is already littered with young French talent. Diop has made a brilliant start to his Hammers career since his £22million move from Toulouse last summer. His performances for the claret and blue outfit even led to Man United boss Jose Mourinho labelling him a ‘monster’ after West Ham’s victory against his side. And PSG believe they could face stiff competition for the centre-back from the Red Devils, so they are said to be looking to wrap up a deal quickly.”


West Ham are reluctant to let Issa Diop go, but a big enough bid could persuade them to sell.

Undoubtedly he would be a fantastic recruit for PSG.

Whether he will join Paris Saint-Germain or not remains to be seen.
