Manchester United and Monaco join race for West Ham defender Issa Diop

As reported by Foot Mercato, West Ham’s Issa Diop is seeing widespread interest in his services ahead of the summer transfer window.

Lyon have long targeted the 25-year-old former Toulouse captain, with €15m the reported asking price, but, with just one year to run on his contract in London, Monaco have also now expressed an interest in the centre-back. Should Benoît Badiashile (21) leave Stade Louis II, as seems likely this summer, the principality club plan to make a play for Diop as his replacement. 

Manchester United are also considering an approach for the player, with interim coach Ralf Rangnick a long-term admirer of Diop’s since his Leipzig days. However, AC Milan and multiple other English sides are also following the player closely ahead of the summer.
