Premier League club Hull City are planning a swoop for Sion striker Moussa Konate, according to reports fromTutto Mercato Web.

Following the resignation of Steve Bruce as manager, Hull seem to be in complete disarray at the moment and the board’s hesitance to appoint a permanent replacement for the 55-year-old has most certainly put the Tigers’ hopes of avoiding the drop from the Premier League in jeopardy.

The absence of a permanent man in charge means that Hull have not been able to conduct any business in the transfer market as of yet and injuries to a host of players means that the Tigers’ current squad looks worryingly thin at the moment.

With the season set to start in a couple of days, Hull most certainly need to bring in a couple of players to the KC Stadium in order to give themselves a chance of staying in the Premier League and perhaps as some relief to the fans, it is believed that the Tigers are currently eyeing up a move for a new striker.

According to reports from Tutto Mercato Web, Hull are interested in signing Konate and the Premier League side are said to be ready to make a swoop for the 23-year-old in the coming days.

Konate has impressed at Sion since joining the club from Russian side Kuban Krasnodar two seasons ago and the Senegalese international is considered one of the most promising young strikers in Europe.

Given the fact that Hull do not have a manager in charge, the links certainly come as a surprise but the club have made some very strange decisions this summer and fans would perhaps be happy just to see a new player arriving at the KC Stadium.
