West Ham open talks with Lyon for Pape Cheikh Diop

West Ham have opened talks with Olympique Lyon for Pape Cheikh Diop.

Diop is currently on-loan at Celta Vigo, which have a purchase option for June worth €9m.

However, AS says West Ham have made contact with Lyon about taking over his loan and are willing to agree a permanent option worth €10m.

Tied to Lyon until 2022, Diop has managed just five starts for Celta this season and is unsettled in Vigo.

West Ham hope to convince all parties to allow Diop to make the move to London this week.
