Tottenham interested in signing French defender valued at more than £50m



Tottenham interested in landing West Ham defender Issa Diop

Tottenham are keen on West Ham defender Issa Diop, according to Sky Sports.

The 22-year-old French centre-back has been a regular in the West Ham defence since joining from Toulouse. However, he hasn’t featured much since the 3-2 defeat by Spurs at the London Stadium.

Jose Mourinho also praised Diop when his Manchester United side were defeated by West Ham a couple of years ago (h/t Sky Sports).

The boss congratulated the scouting department of the Hammers for finding such the talent too (h/t Sky Sports).

West Ham want big bucks for Diop

The Hammers might be struggling a bit under Manuel Pellegrini but they do not want to sell Diop.

The report claims that the Hammers value him at more than £50m and it will be interesting to see if Spurs make a move for Diop.

Tottenham have some defensive concerns with Jan Vertonghen out of a contract in the summer. However, Toby Alderweireld penned a new deal to remain at Spurs for a few more years.

Sky Sports adds that Spurs see Diop as a long-term replacement for both Vertonghen and Alderweireld.

The pair are in their 30s, however, we do have Juan Foyth and Davinson Sanchez in our ranks too.

Mourinho does need to make some additions to the side and we need to make the defence tighter under the Portuguese.
