Tottenham linked with Diop
Issa Diop has been on West Ham’s books since July of 2018.
The Hammers are believed to have paid French outfit Toulouse around £22.5m for Diop’s services.
In total, the 22-year-old has featured 54 times across all competitions for West Ham.
Diop has also shown signs that he is a real talent whilst playing for West Ham. However, a case could be made that the centre-back is by no means the finished article.
The Frenchman has also been struggling for game time in recent weeks with Diop managing just two minutes of action in West Ham’s last two league outings.
And with the winter window just around the corner, Diop is now being linked with a move to Tottenham.
Sky’s Kaveh Solhekol reported on Saturday that Spurs want to sign the West Ham defender.
But while West Ham reportedly don’t want to sell him, Solhekol claims in today’s market Diop would be valued at more than £50m.

Clarke to be recalled?
Sky Sports News have also recently published a report concerning Tottenham’s Jack Clarke.
The Lilywhites signed the youngster this past summer from Leeds before loaning him back out to the Championship outfit.
However, since returning to Leeds, Clarke has found his playing time extremely limited.
The 19-year-old had played just 19 minutes of Championship action this term before this weekend’s games.
And Sky Sports are now claiming that Tottenham intend to recall Clarke from his loan spell at Leeds in January and assess whether he can join the first-team squad.
