West Ham United could reignite their interest in Barcelona defender Moussa Wague this summer, according to a report.

West Ham United could reportedly reignite their interest in Barcelona defender Moussa Wague during this summer's transfer window.

The Hammers were linked with a potential swoop for the right-back during the latter stages of the January window but were unable to get a deal over the line.

Wague, who has only appeared once for Barca this term, ultimately joined Nice on loan for the remainder of the 2019-20 campaign, and the French side have the option to sign the Senegal international permanently this summer.

However, according to The Sun, West Ham will continue to keep tabs on the defender as they weigh up making a fresh move during the next transfer window.

The report claims that Wague could be available for £16m, although it remains to be seen whether Nice take up their option to sign the former Eupen youngster.

Wague, who scored for his country at the 2018 World Cup, has made six first-team appearances for Barca in all competitions.

Only three teams - Southampton, Aston Villa and Norwich City - have a worse defensive record than David Moyes's side during the current Premier League season.
