Having landed West Ham stalwart James Tomkins already this summer, the Crystal Palace fans in the Transfer Tavern have had plenty to chat about with their capital counterparts in the venue’s sunny beer garden recently.
Now, the conversation could get even deeper.
The Eagles are said to have Hammers ace Diafra Sakho on their radar as The Eagles look to bolster their squad before the start of the season, according to The Mirror.
The £15m rated man, has been told he will not be able to leave East London until they find a suitable replacement for the man who bagged 15 goals in 43 appearances last season.
This news follows a troubled transfer saga that started with Sakho missing his side’s USA and Austria pre-season tours.
Hope could be on the horizon though, with the Irons closing in on AC Milan’s Carlos Bacca after it was reported a fee was agreed just under a fortnight ago.
Those in South London will find they have competition for the Senegalese stars signature, as they join Swansea, Sunderland and West Brom in pursuit of the striker.
Sakho, who signed for the club in 2014, is said to be on £30,000 a week, and has already handed in a transfer request in an attempt to push for a move away from West Ham.
What do you think Palace fans?! Would you be happy with Sakho as your man up top next season? And what about you Hammers, would Bacca be a good enough replacement? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
