West Ham United fans are desperate for Balde Keita Diao to sign for them, even if they are treating reports that they have agreed a fee for the Lazio winger with scepticism.
It is now up to the 22-year-old to decide whether he wants a move to the London Stadium.
And West Ham fans are dreaming that Keita Diao will accept their offer.
Zabs, Hart, Hernandez and Arnautovic this window and I'll be happy. Although Keita Balde Diao aswell would be a madness— Lewis Preston (@LewisPreston) July 18, 2017
Honestly, if @WestHamUtd sign Javier Hernandez and Arnautovic / Balde Diao, I'll be so happy..— kyleayles (@KyleAyles7) July 18, 2017
For anyone who doesn't who Keita Balde Diao is, let's just say that if we sign him he'll be comfortably our best player— Chaz (@CM_WHU) July 18, 2017
Balde Diao 5/2 odds on sky bet too, still unlikely and I won't get my hopes up but would be an incredible signing— Connor O'Sullivan (@connorosull) July 19, 2017
If Balde Diao signs. I don't even know what I'd do— Tom Allen (@tomwhu13) July 19, 2017
Keita Balde...... as if! Probably one of the best midfield players in Series A! #whufc— Lee Pethers (@leepethers) July 18, 2017
Of course I don't expect Keita Balde Diao to join, but if he does... #COYI— West Ham News/Views (@WHUFC_News_6) July 18, 2017
I watched him last season. What a player if true— Scott Corless (@ScottieCorless) July 18, 2017
If West Ham were to snap up Keita Diao it would be a show of their ambitions for the upcoming season.
The Senegalese international is considered one of the top talents in Serie A, after blasting in 16 goals last term.
West Ham have been quiet in the transfer window to date, but things are stepping up now.
The Hammers have completed deals for Pablo Zabaleta and Joe Hart, with Slaven Bilic’s side set to bring in more new arrivals in the near future.
