London quartet Crystal Palace, Fulham, West Ham and Brentford are all being linked with Strasbourg striker Habib Diallo. The Senegal international has scored 20 goals this season and his current club could lose him to the Premier League this summer.
According to Football Insider, a host of teams have been scouting him over recent times. Europe chasing Brighton and Hove Albion have also been mentioned as a potential suitor as well.
The report claims Crystal Palace, Fulham, West Ham and Brentford have ‘watched’ the attacker ahead of next term. All four teams will be looking to bolster their ranks when the next transfer window opens.
Diallo, who is 27-years-old, doesn’t appear short of options and will carefully weigh up his next destination if he is to leave France in the near future. He joined Strasbourg back in 2020 and hasn’t looked back since.
He has scored 40 goals in 100 games so far and is under contract at Stade de la Meinau until 2025 meaning his current club are under no pressure to cash in on him yet unless the price is right. The Thiès-born man started his career at Metz and went on to chip in with 48 goals in 115 matches for them, as well as having a couple of loan moves away at Brest to gain experience.
Crystal Palace, Fulham, West Ham and Brentford have big transfer decisions to make and goal scoring strikers are tough to get due to the amount of competition for them.
