Wolverhampton Wanderers, Newcastle United and West Ham United are interested in signing Djibril Sidibe from AS Monaco in the summer transfer window, according to 90min.

West Ham are leading the race for the former Everton loanee, but Wolves and Newcastle remain interested in the France international right-back, according to the report.

It has been further claimed that Monaco are prepared to let the 28-year-old right-back leave on loan, but ‘only if a permanent deal is included as part of the move’.

Everton spell

Sidibe spent the 2019-20 campaign on loan at Everton from Monaco, but the Toffees decided not to take up the option to make the deal permanent.

According to WhoScored, the 28-year-old right-back made 18 starts and seven substitute appearances in the Premier League for the Merseyside club last season, providing four assists in the process.

Back to the Premier League?

Sidibe was not a massive success at Everton, but the Frenchman did relatively well at Goodison Park and showed that he can hold his own in the Premier League.

Wolves, Newcastle or West Ham would be getting a good player if they sign the France international on a loan deal, although one must note that Wanderers have just signed Ki-Jana Hoever, who can play as a right-back or as a centre-back.
