Issa Diop insists he is fully committed to the West Ham cause despite reported interest from Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United. The France Under-21 international only moved to the London Stadium from Toulouse during the summer but has already established himself as a regular fixture in Manuel Pellegrini’s side.
Diop’s form has led to speculation PSG are lining up a January bid to lure him back to France, while United boss Jose Mourinho was also full of praise following the 21-year-old’s performance in West Ham’s 3-1 victory over the Red Devils earlier this season.
Diop is taking the recent speculation regarding his future with a pinch of salt as his sole focus is on performing well for the Hammers.
When asked if he has heard about the reported interest in his services, Diop told FootMercato: “Not at all. I’m at West Ham right now. I take the most pleasure from this. I try to give the best possible performance.”
The centre-back went on to confirm he was originally drawn to West Ham by the “project” they had on offer so he has no intention of leaving any time soon. “West Ham is the club that wanted me the most, where there was the most affinity,” he added.
“The project interested me. That’s why I chose them.”
