According to RMC Sport, West Ham are currently in negotiations to sign Reims striker Boulaye Dia, with Willie McKay overseeing the discussions.
The British agent is acting as an intermediary for the Hammers, as they look to wrap up a deal for the Senegal international.
No fee is mentioned by RMC Sport, while the French news outlet add that the Ligue 1 side are yet to receive a written offer for their talisman.
RMC Sport add that several other clubs are interested in the 24-year-old.
However, only West Ham’s name is mentioned when revealing those currently negotiating with the French club.
If the Irons can land this replacement for Sebastien Haller, then the London Stadium faithful should get excited, in our view.
Dia is enjoying a phenomenal season so far.
He has netted 12 goals in Ligue 1, putting him level with Paris Saint-Germain’s world-class forward Kylian Mbappe in the division’s scoring charts.
What type of player is he? Well, Ligue 1’s official website described the Reims No.11 as a ‘Senegalese goal machine’ as well as an attacker who is ‘utterly direct’.
Just by watching Dia, he appears to be nippy and quick on his feet, while also being a composed figure inside the box.
This deal is definitely one to keep an eye on over the coming days.
