Wolves are among the clubs interested in West Ham defender Issa Diop this summer.
According to a report by French outlet Foot Mercato, Wolves are keen on the 24-year-old.
They claim that Crystal Palace and Southampton are also sniffing around the centre-half.
It was reported after the confirmation of Jose Sa’s arrival that Wolves wanted to turn their attention to a central defender and a central midfielder.
No outstanding candidate had yet crystalised at the heart of the defence but Diop could be that man.
As per Sky Sports, West Ham quoted Manchester United £60 million for Diop back in June 2019.
His stock has fallen since then and Craig Dawson and Fabian Balbuena established themselves as David Moyes’ first choice for much of last season.
That means Diop could be an achievable signing and some Wolves fans had their say on the links on social media:
