Atletico Madrid join battle for West Ham defender Issa Diop

Atletico Madrid are tracking West Ham defender Issa Diop.

The French youngster is attracting interest from the Premier League's biggest clubs, however Goal says a move to Spain is also emerging as an option.

The Champions League quarterfinalists would be willing to offer €40m to tempt West Ham to sell.

Diop has already attracted interest from Manchester United during his time in England but West Ham co-owner David Sullivan issued a strong hands-off warning to Old Trafford bosses.

However, Arsenal are ready to test the Eastenders' resolve and there is a belief that if David Moyes's men fail to beat the drop that they could get the player on the cheap with him likely to seek a move away from the London Stadium.
