Reports from (via 90minutes) suggest that star Diao is set to join after the club agreed a club record fee with the side for his signature.

While the Senegal is now is his fourth season with Lazio, Balde Diao announced himself on the world last season following a terrific individual campaign for The Eagles as he scored 16 times in 32 appearances.

His form has attracted attention from a number of Europe’s top clubs including Juventus and Inter Milan, as well as West Ham who are looking to strengthen their attacking line after a disappointing previous season.

Should the sign the Senegalese star, he would be one of a number of big names set to complete a move to the London Stadium, with both Javier Hernandez and Marko Arnautovic also set to become West Ham players in the next few days.

At only 22, Balde Diao has plenty of good years ahead of him, and we at Forever West Ham think signing the pacy winger is a no brainer, but do you think West Ham should break their transfer record for the Lazio star?
