Cardiff City Looking To Add This West Ham United Outcast: The Right Man For Them?

Cardiff City have been a rage in the Championship this season. The Wales side have been at the peak of their form throughout the season and are currently leading the way just behind Wolves in the second tier.

Cardiff are within touching distance of third-placed Bristol City so then need to keep it tight in this long run. Bluebirds gaffer Neil Warnock is aware of the threat and is chalking his plans for January transfer window.

Warnock is likely to bring another forward as he is falling short in the attacking department. According to reports, Cardiff are preparing a move for West Ham United striker Diafra Sakho.

Both Kenneth Zohore and Danny Ward have been down injured so Cardiff needs someone who can push themselves in front of the goal. Sakho hasn’t been involved much but he could be a pretty decent addition.

He found the net only a single time in the Premier League this season so David Moyes is unlikely to block his departure should he trigger a move to the Cardiff City Stadium.

Sakho tried to make a move back in August but he remained at the London Stadium but this time Cardiff’s interest is pretty serious and the forward won’t mind playing in the second tier. He needs to have ample game time to be featured in the World Cup squad of Senegal.

David Moyes has slapped a price tag of £12m but the Bluebirds are unlikely to go that far for Sakho. Sakho’s contract is up for expire at the end of the season so the Hammers might give a go-ahead to a cut-price deal for the forward.

The Hammers do have a pretty envious attacking lineup with the likes of Javier Hernandez and Andy Carroll under their fold so realistically it won’t affect their game plan.

Sakho was used sparingly against Chelsea as he had a brief cameo appearance from the bench. He doesn’t seem to be the preferred choice anymore so he wants to leave the London Stadium for a better opportunity.

Cardiff are currently in the second position in the second tier and would be hoping to gain an automatic promotion to the Premier League. Warnock’s side have exceeded the expectations so far and they have to keep it running for the remainder of the season.

With an automatic promotion at stake, Cardiff might feel the urge to splashing a heavy fee on the striker who hasn’t played much.
