Reports from Senegal suggest that Moussa Konate is currently in London negotiating a move to England.

The 19-year-old striker has been one of the biggest succeses of the Olympic football tournament, scoring five times in his four appearances during the games - making him the competition's second-highest goalscorer.

Just last week, the Maccabi Tel Aviv forward revealed that he would be interested in a move to West Ham after he was linked with the Hammers. "There is talk of interest from West Ham and that would make me very happy," he said, adding ""I hope I can move to the Premier League."

This morning, reports from Senegalese media claimed that Konate was set to achieve his dream move - although his exact destination remains unclear.

Speaking via Twitter, a journalist reporting on behalf of the Senegalese Football Federation said: "I can't confirm where yet but London 2012 star Moussa Konate is in the midst of negotiations for a transfer to England."

Senegal, who drew 1-1 with Great Britain - a game in which Konate opened his account for the tournament - were knocked out of the competition by Mexico in the first knockout phase.

Further to that goal the young striker scored twice against Uruguay, once against the United Arab Emirates before closing his account with a goal against Mexico.
