Osmanlispor midfielder Badou N’Diaye is close to completing his move to West Ham United, according to The Mirror.
West Ham have been tracking Badou N’Diaye for a long time and are now finally closing in on the move.
The Hammers are looking to strengthen their attacking midfield options and provide competition for Michail Antonio and Manuel Lanzini in those areas.
Badou N’Diaye now looks set to become their latest addition to the squad.
West Ham have reportedly agreed an £8.5m deal with Osmanlispor to prise away their star man.
The 8-cap Senegal international could now team up his fellow countrymen Diafra Sakho and Cheikhou Kouyate at the London Stadium.
The 26-year-old has been drafted in to provide goals from midfield.
N’Diaye has bagged sixteen goals in the last two seasons for Osmalispor and was previously fairly prolific from midfield for Norwegian side Bodo/Glimt.
Badou N’Diaye is able to play as a central midfielder but prefers being further forward in the midfield regions.
He can also play as a winger.
The Irons are still keen on bringing in a new striker but it looks like Badou N’Diaye will become their second summer signing, following Manchester City’s Pablo Zabaleta to East London this summer.
