West Ham: Journalist makes Ibrahima Sissoko claim -West Ham Transfer Rumours

West Ham United have set their sights on an alternative to Piotr Zielinski and Amadou Onana as news emerges on Strasbourg midfielder Ibrahima Sissoko.

The Lowdown: Hammers eye new midfield man…

Hammers head coach David Moyes seems determined to sign a new central midfielder who can come in and rotate with the likes of Tomas Soucek and Declan Rice in front of the back four.

Where will West Ham finish at the end of 2022/2023?

Onana and Zielinski, reliably thought to be targeted by the east Londoners, are no longer on their way and West Ham may need to start from scratch in the efforts to sign a player for that position.

This comes amid Moyes’ clear transfer demand to the media recently, where the Scotsman suggested his side need to do far more before the Premier League window shuts.

The Latest: West Ham set sights on Sissoko…

Now, as per Foot 365 Ligue 1 journalist Ignazio Genuardi, the club have set their sights on colossal 6 foot 3 Strasbourg ace Sissoko after ‘missing’ out on Zielinski and Onana.

He explained:

“In search of reinforcement in the midfield, the Hammers did not wish to overpay (transfer + salary). After missing Zielinski and therefore Onana, the team managed by Moyes looks in particular at Strasbourg Sissoko.”

The Verdict: Good alternative?

Such an imposing figure, there is little question Sissoko possesses a physicality tailor-made to the English top flight.

Still just 24-years-old, the player would come with bags of potential and an ability to get forward – having notched two goals and five assists in Ligue 1 last season.

Valued at around £7.2 million by Transfermarkt, Sissoko could also be an affordable option for the club having missed out on pricier targets.
