English Premier League side West Ham have reportedly joined the list of Premier League clubs interested in a summer move for Real Valladolid star Mohammed Salisu.
Manchester United, Southampton, Arsenal and Everton have all been linked with a bid for the Ghanaian centre back ahead of the 2020-21 season, with his release clause currently set at €12m.
However, according to reports from the Mail on Sunday, David Moyes is also interested in the 21-year old, due to the potential summer departure of England international Declan Rice.
Real Valladolid are working to tie the Ghanaian defender to a new deal in Spain, but the lure of a Premier League move could be enough to tempt him away in the coming months.
Sergio Gonzalez’s side will not accept offers below Salisu’s release clause, and all interested parties will be willing to pay their asking price.
Salisu has enjoyed an outstanding debut season in the Spanish top flight, with 31 appearances from 34 La Liga games, as Valladolid look well placed to avoid relegation.
He has a £10.8million release clause which makes him attractive to West Ham who are keen to bolster their defence but are unsure of their budget at this stage.
French side Rennes have been pushing to sign him but Salisu is eager to move to the Premier League.
Salisu earned a call-up to the senior national team of Ghana under Coach Kwesi Appiah for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against South Africa and Sao Tome and Principle but he missed out due to injury
