West Ham reportedly battling Crystal Palace for 26-year-old African midfielder

According to reports, West Ham United are ready to challenge Crystal Palace in the race to sign Osmalispor midfielder Badou N’Diaye.

The Hammers reportedly enquired with the Turkish club over a possible deal for the player at the end of last season, though nothing firm has materialized since, with the East London club instead focusing their attention on bringing new quality strikers to the club.

Now it however appears that Slaven Bilic’s team have reignited their interest in signing the Senegal international, especially with Havard Nordtveit having left the club to join Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim.

N’Diaye attracted the interest of the Hammers after some impressive displays for Osmalispor last season, during which he managed to score six goals and provide two assist from 26 appearances.

He is likely to be keen on a move to England and in the end, whoever signs him will come down to whoever wants him more.
