Arsenal watch as Man Utd make offer for Issa Diop

Manchester United have made an offer for West Ham United defender Issa Diop, it has been revealed.

Le 10 Sport says United made their move for Diop as an alternative to No1 defensive target Harry Maguire, of Leicester City.

United have made a verbal offer of €55m plus a choice of Marcos Rojo or Phil Jones in exchange for Diop. But the Irons rejected the bid, insisting the Frenchman would only leave for €80m cash.

However, it's suggested privately West Ham would be willing to sell for €65m.

Arsenal, meanwhile, have also made contact - asking West Ham to name their price for Diop three weeks ago.
