West Ham United fans appear largely in agreement that if Sunderland have made an £11 million bid for Diafra Sakho, as Sky Sports reported, it should be accepted.

Sakho enjoyed a wonderful maiden season at the Hammers, where he scored on a regular basis.

However, the powerful striker struggled to reach the same standards last season and it seems likely that he will be upgraded this summer.

West Ham are on the hunt for a striker in the upcoming transfer window, and they have already been linked with some high profile targets.

The likes of Alexandre Lacazette and Christian Benteke are both reportedly on West Ham’s wishlist, leaving Sakho’s future in doubt.

Sakho scored just five Premier League goals last season, and there are some concerns over whether he is capable of leading the line on a regular basis from supporters of the London club.

As a result, most West Ham fans appear to feel that Sunderland’s bid of £11m is an acceptable price, and they have backed the club to sell the Senegalese international. Here is the best reaction on social media site Twitter.
