​West Ham boss Pellegrini wants Man City whizkid Diaz

West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini will try and sign Manchester City starlet Brahim Diaz on a season-long loan.

The 18-year-old is one of City's brightest prospects and manager Pep Guardiola values his qualities highly.

The Hammers received a blow when Manuel Lanzini was confirmed to miss nine months of action following a cruciate knee ligament injury.

Pellegrini sees Diaz as a perfect replacement for the Argentine, while Guardiola should be willing to give the player game time he can't get at the Etihad next term.
