According to The Sun, Everton and Newcastle United are interested in signing West Ham United winger Grady Diangana.
It’s claimed that Ajax and Celtic are both in the race for Diangana, and West Ham are facing a battle to convince him to stay.
The winger is worried about first-team opportunities at West Ham, and wants to be playing regularly having been crucial on loan at West Bromwich Albion this season.
Diangana may be open to leaving permanently, and both Everton and Newcastle are interested in giving him an escape route having tracked his progress this season.
West Ham want around £15million to £20million for the wide man, who now finds himself a wanted man ahead of the summer window.
The Herald claim that Rangers have held talks about signing Diangana, as have Celtic; given the price tag, both moves are surely loan offers.
Newcastle would almost certainly be able to pay that kind of money if their takeover finally goes through, whilst he does fit what Everton need; a right-sided winger who can come in on his left foot and either create or score.
Diangana, 22, has hit seven goals and six assists this season, and dazzled defences with his trickery and quick feet.
It’s no surprise that he is a wanted man, and both Everton and Newcastle could now ruin the chances of him appearing in an Old Firm derby – and West Ham will soon have a big call to make.
