Dan-Axel Zagadou, a former defender for Borussia Dortmund, is the target of Roma's pursuit, but West Ham is now said to be a rival. The 23-year-old French centre back is currently unattached as the final month of the summer transfer season approaches. His contract with the Bundesliga club terminated last month, making him a free agent.
If Issa Diop decides to depart this month, West Ham is eager to make a play for the free agent and is keenly monitoring Zagadou's status. Roma are getting ready to make an offer to the Frenchman, so they'll need to act quickly if they want to beat off the competition.
Both the Giallorossi and the Hammers enjoyed successful transfer windows this summer, and both teams are developing strong projects in their respective capitals. Gianluca Scamacca, Nayef Aguerd, and Maxwel Cornet are among the important acquisitions that West Ham made after spending over €100 million, while Roma made a strong impression on the free agent market by signing Paulo Dybala and Nemanja Matic.
