Issa Diop in demand


West Ham need to sell players this summer and they would be willing to listen to offers of £45m for Issa Diop.
He was reported to be valued at £75m when Manchester United were linked with him last summer. At least two Premier League clubs want to sign him in this window.
Diop is thought to earn less than half what some of his team-mates do and a fresh start at a new club would bring a big increase on his £50,000 a week wages.
Chelsea deal for Chilwell getting closer
It is no secret that Chelsea manager Frank Lampard wants to sign a new left-back and his No 1 target is Leicester and England defender Ben Chilwell.
Leicester showed last summer they will not let their players leave for anything less than top dollar when Manchester United had to pay £80m for Harry Maguire.
Leicester are under no pressure to sell because Chilwell is under contract until 2024, but the situation could change if he asks to leave.
Chelsea can offer Chilwell Champions League football and if he moves he would automatically become Lampard’s first choice left-back at Stamford Bridge.
We are told to look out for developments this week. If a move for Chilwell cannot be agreed then another target, Ajax’s Nicolas Tagliafico, is available for less than half the price.
Lampard is not convinced by the left-backs he currently has in his squad and Emerson Palmieri is set to move to Inter Milan after they finish their Europa League campaign.
Jadon Sancho came on as a second-half substitute on Sunday, scoring and setting up three goals in Borussia Dortmund’s 11-2 win against Austria Vienna.
As far as Dortmund are concerned he is staying for at least one more season, but Manchester United remain in talks with the player’s representatives with the blessing of Dortmund.

Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho says he is enjoying working with the younger players at the club.
United have still not made an official offer for Sancho.
If they make a realistic offer – close to Dortmund’s €120m (£108m) asking price – it is thought that Sancho would be willing to tell Dortmund that he wants to leave.
