WEST HAM and Everton are battling it out for £25million Toulouse starlet Issa Diop, according to reports.
The Irons are said to have an agreement in place for the 21-year-old France-born defender.

But the Mirror claim Marco Silva is monitoring the situation closely as he looks to reshape his defence at Goodison Park.
Diop, who has represented France at every level from Under-16s to U21s, operates as a centre-half.
He started his youth career at Balma SC in 2004 but has been with Toulouse since 2006, so far making 85 appearances for the senior side and scoring six goals.
His exploits have certainly not gone unnoticed.
