The Hammers have made a £1.5million bid for the 19year old after watching him net 4 goals in the Olympics so far.
Speaking after Senegal's 1-1 draw with the United Arab Emirates, Konaté said: "I hope I can move to the Premier League; hopefully I will get the chance. I hope my agent can fix something for me.
"There is talk of interest from West Ham and that would make me very happy, but that they must do more. West Ham have to show how much they love me."
