Four clubs in the race to sign West Ham striker

Four Premier League clubs are keen on signing want away West Ham striker Diafra Sakho as Crystal Palace become the latest club to declare their interest.

The striker had an impressive debut campaign at West Ham in the 2014/15 season, but fell out of favour under Slaven Bilic, and now wants to leave the club.

Crystal Palace are the latest club to show an interest in the striker, who is also attracting the attention of Sunderland, Swansea and West Brom, who want the striker to replace Saido Berahino at the Hawthorns.

However, the wait to sign the striker will depend on West Hams ability to sign a replacement striker.

West Ham co-owner David Sullivan told the Daily Mirror:

He is not for sale until we get players in. Until we bring strikers in, we simply cannot let strikers go. James Tomkins was different because we had a surplus in the centre-half department.

But until we get at least a couple of strikers we can’t let any forward go. I am a little concerned because I’d like to have signed one by now. But it is what it is.

West Ham have missed out signing Michy Batshuayi who joined Chelsea, and are struggling in their attempts to sign Carlos Bacca from AC Milan.
