West Ham’s Diafra Sakho is yet to make up his mind over a possible move to Crystal Palace as the Eagles’ wait for a striker goes on.
The Hammers are happy for the Senegal international to leave this summer and want £15m for the striker, who is also a target for West Brom and Sunderland.
West Ham will not sell until they have found a replacement, though, so his exit is being held up, meaning Palace could pursue alternatives as boss Alan Pardew looks for a top-quality frontman.
Sakho is a priority for the Palace manager but he may not wait around too long for the deal as the new season approaches and a move to either the Hawthorns or the Stadium of Light could materialise.
It is thought Sakho wants to join a club in Europe next season, but if he does not get an offer to fit those aims he would be happy with a switch to Selhurst Park so he could stay in London.
