Lazio forward has heart set on West Ham move
In the transfer merry go round, where social media activity is intensely scrutinized for rumours and speculation, Keita Balde Diao is leaving no stone unturned to showcase his interest in a transfer to the Premier League.
West Ham have submitted a bid for the left forward which could be rising upto £26 million and if his social media preferences are anything to go by then the former Barcelona youth product will be trading the Roman outfit for Claret and Blue very soon.
The current Lazio young gun has been noted for commenting on Pedro Obiang’s posts and following him & Chiekhou Kouyate on Instagram, both being West Ham first team players. Slaven Bilic will be hoping to fend off interest from rival parties and such social media stunts by the Senegalese would surely delight him.
Since the departure of the talismanic Dimitri Payet, Hammers have struggled to find quality output from the left side of the pitch and view Kieta as the ideal replacement having scored 16 and assisted a further 3 in the Serie A last season.
Linked with the likes of Liverpool, Tottenham and AC Milan for an eternity, it seems West Ham have outbid them by making a significant offer for the winger in bringing him to the Olympic Stadium.
