West Ham in talks with Barcelona to sign Moussa Wague

According to Mundo Deportivo, West Ham are in talks with Barcelona to sign Moussa Wague this summer.

Moussa Wague is a 21-year-old Senegalese international who plays at right-back.

 

Who is Moussa Wague?

Wague was originally discovered at the Aspire Academy before he went to train with Belgian side KAS Eupen.

In 2018, he joined Barcelona B in a 5 million euro deal, and made 3 appearances for the 1st team that season against Huesca, Celta and Eibar.

Wague is also the youngest-ever African goalscorer at a World Cup.

In 2018 in Russia, aged 19 years and 263 days, Wague scored for Senegal against Japan.

 

How much would West Ham pay for Moussa Wague?

Moussa Wague is under contract at the Camp Nou until 2023, however Mundo Deportivo believe that Barcelona would be keen to sell the defender this summer.

Wague has returned to Spain following a loan spell at Nice. He moved to France in January.

In his short time in Ligue 1 this season, Wague claimed 2 assists in 5 games for Nice.

Mundo Deportivo believe that West Ham have two routes to signing Wague for next season.

The Hammers can agree a loan deal including a 16 million euro option to buy.

Alternatively, West Ham could pay 10 million euros to sign Wague on a permanent deal now.

West Ham’s right-back issues

It’s easy to understand why David Moyes is keen to boost West Ham’s options at right-back.

Ryan Fredericks is the club’s only real option in that slot right now, following Pablo Zabaleta’s exit from the club, and Jeremy Ngakia’s refusal to sign a short-term extension until the end of the season.
