West Ham United are interested in a potential move for Senegal international Moussa Konate.
According to reports from ClaretandHugh, the Hammers are looking to add some attacking fire-power to the squad, and they have been alerted to the talent of Konate and the possibility of bringing him to London.
Konate currently plays in Switzerland for FC Sion, where his goalscoring touch has been on display, scoring 11 goals in the 17 appearances he has made this season. He is also reportedly being monitored by Newcastle United and Aston Villa.
Konate previously spent a season on loan at Genoa, gaining valuable experience in the Italian top flight which has helped to improve his attacking game, allowing him to shine at his Swiss club and with the national team.
He managed to show his class once again at the weekend, scoring twice for his national team to allow the Teranga Lions to record a 2-1 victory over 2015 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) runners up, Ghana.
The striker has now scored five goals in ten matches for Senegal, and joined the squad at the 2015 Nations Cup as a late replacement for West Ham’s Diafra Sakho.
The 21-year-old could join fellow Senegalese striker Sakho at the Hammers, should a move for Konate become a reality, creating the possibility of an all-Senegalese strike partnership at Upton Park.
