Report: West Ham risk losing Amalfitano and Sakho, unnamed clubs register interest

Amalfitano

Unnamed clubs are reportedly monitoring West Ham duo Morgan Amaltifano and Diafra Sakho.

According to the Daily Mail, West Ham are left sweating as unnamed clubs line up moves for both Morgan Amalfitano and Diafra Sakho.

The Hammers have been busy bringing players into Upton Park this summer, but now they could be set to receive interest in two of their stars.

The Daily Mail report that, whilst West Ham continue to look for new arrivals, they have also seen clubs register interest in signing Amalfitano and Sakho.

Midfielder Amalfitano joined from Marseille last summer, and whilst the 30-year-old was in and out of the side under Sam Allardyce last season, he did make a number of impressive cameo appearances.

Meanwhile, striker Sakho - another signing from last summer - made an instant impact in the Premier League, scoring ten league goals in just 23 games for the Hammers.

The Senegal international is bound to be attracting interest, and the Daily Mail also reported earlier this summer that Manchester United and Newcastle United are pursuing the 25-year-old ahead of the new Premier League season.

Can West Ham really afford to lose Sakho?

New manager Slaven Bilic is already struggling in attack, with Andy Carroll still injured, leaving him with just Enner Valencia, Modibo Maiga and star striker Sakho.

With West Ham needing another striker anyway, they surely can't afford to be losing a forward to a Premier League rival, with Sakho expected to continue his form from last season.

It's been a whirlwind 12 months for Sakho, who has gone from Metz to Premier League stardom - and that needs to continue at West Ham rather than anywhere else.
