West Brom are reportedly keen on West Ham striker Diafra Sakho.

According to the Daily Mail, West Bromwich Albion failed with a January move to sign West Ham United striker Diafra Sakho - but could move for him again this summer.

Sakho, 26, impressed for West Ham last season, hitting 12 goals in his debut season following a summer move from French side Metz, as he shocked the Premier League with a strong campaign.

The Senegal international has endured a much more difficult second season though, scoring just six goals in 19 games for the Hammers, as he has failed to nail down a regular first-team place under Slaven Bilic.

Now, the Daily Mail note that Sakho is keen on a summer move away from the club, as he is not only frustrated that Bilic didn't pick him for Saturday's game against Arsenal, but is also unhappy that he didn't receive a new contract over the course of this season, whilst players like Cheikhou Kouyate and Dimitri Payet did.

If Sakho is to leave West Ham, he will no doubt be looking for a club who can give him the regular first-team football he craves, and the Daily Mail report that West Bromwich Albion have a long-standing interest in the striker.

It's claimed that West Brom made a move to sign Sakho during the January transfer window, but Tony Pulis' men could renew their interest this summer.

With Saido Berahino's future still up in the air and Rickie Lambert making no impact at The Hawthorns, Sakho could make a real impact with the Baggies, and a deal may be possible with Sakho seemingly pushing for a move away from West Ham this summer.

Do you think Sakho will leave West Ham this summer?
