Newcastle United and Everton want to sign West Ham United striker Diafra Sakho, according to reports.

According to an exclusive report by The Sun, Everton want to sign Diafra Sakho.

And reliable journalist Alan Nixon has also confirmed that Newcastle United hold an interest in the unsettled striker too.

Sakho’s future at West Ham looks bleak as he continues to search for a move away from The London Stadium.

The Senegal international joined West Ham in summer 2014 and has scored 18 goals in 62 appearances in the Premier League.

But his time in East London has been marred by off the field incidents and behavioural problems, as well as his repeated attempts to leave the club in each transfer window.

Everton, who recently shelled £27m on Cenk Tosun, are still looking at strikers to bring in and Sam Allardyce knows Sakho from his days at West Ham.

Allardyce brought the 28-year-old to England and now wants to reunite with him at Goodison Park.

Meanwhile, Newcastle United have enquired about taking the £7.2m-rated forward on loan but West Ham have so far rejected their advances.

West Ham are thought to be holding out for a £15m permanent sale of Sakho and some French clubs are also interested in him.
