The France U19 international has established himself as one of the country’s most exciting young talents this season alongside compatriot Harold Moukoudi at Le Havre.
The defensive midfielder has been hugely impressive for a team who are still hoping to earn promotion from the French second tier.
But, according to L’Equipe, the Sky and Navy are facing a tough challenge attempting to convince Gueye to extend a contract that is currently due to expire in the summer of 2020.
Because West Ham, Leicester and Watford are all forming a queue to bring the 20-year-old to English football over the next few weeks.
Interestingly, Gueye is not the first Le Havre starlet who has been linked with a move to West Ham recently. The Mail reported in August last year that centre-back Moukoudi (below) was in talks over a £10 million move to the London Stadium, though he is now expected to join Ligue 1 outfit St Etienne.
