Rangers make approach for West Ham star


West Ham United need to win on Friday.

They face Watford in a relegation six-pointer that could ultimately decide whether or not the club will be able to stay in the Premier League.

They are just three points clear of AFC Bournemouth in 18th but they are level on points with the Hornets.

A draw could ultimately be mutually beneficial but securing a win would leave them six points clear of the drop zone with just two games remaining.

David Moyes’ side play Manchester United and Aston Villa in the final two games of the season, so they could alleviate a great deal of pressure if they beat Nigel Pearson’s side.

It appears that they are already starting to make plans for the summer, though, and there appears to be interest in winger Grady Diangana.

The star is currently on loan at West Bromwich Albion, where he has scored seven goals and registered six assists.


The Baggies are second in the Championship with two games of the season remaining against Huddersfield Town and QPR; winning both would secure promotion to the Premier League.

Rangers, though, seem to want to snaffle the 22-year-old away from east London

Football Insider reports that Steven Gerrard’s side have expressed an interest in snapping Diangana up, with the forward valued at £20 million.

However, Moyes is keen to keep him, and does not intend to let him go in the summer transfer window.

Gerrard’s side, then, face an uphill battle to convince Diangana to move north of the border.

GIVEMESPORT’S Harry Sherlock says…

Diangana is clearly in demand.

But the Hammers really ought to be building around a talent like the winger.

He has been excellent for the Baggies this term and offers genuine pace, positional versatility, and the ability to both score and create goals.

It makes sense for the Premier League club to give him a chance next season and see if he can develop into a genuinely superb forward.

Letting him move to Rangers would be a devastating mistake.
