Arsenal made an enquiry over the availability of West Ham defender Issa Diop, according to reports.
The Gunners are still in need for defensive reinforcements despite agreeing the £27million signing of William Saliba – the St Etienne defender returning to his club for the 2019/20 season.
Diop was the subject of interest from Manchester United earlier this summer with reports claiming they were ready to make a bid for the towering defender.
And Foot Mercato claims that West Ham have set their asking price for Diop at £80m with a ‘verbal offer’ coming in from United for £50m.
Marcos Rojo or Phil Jones were also suggested as possible makeweights in the deal but the idea ‘did not really delight West Ham’.
