Arsenal update: West Ham’s Mohamed Diame a target

Ashley Football 2 Comments

With Mikkel Arteta out for three weeks Arsenal have been linked with a few defensively minded midfielders. Yann M’Vila and Étienne Capoue have both been mentioned in dispatches but one possible solution that The Sun is touting this morning is West Ham’s Mohamed Diame.

The player has been linked with Arsenal before and now it seems that the Gunners are considering a quick move for the 25 year old Senegalese star.

There are a few questions over the player’s fitness in that he tore a hamstring last month. Diame was however an an unused sub in Saturday’s game with Sunderland and he is expected to start in the FA Cup replay at Manchester United on Wednesday.

He could be picked up relatively cheaply at around £3.5 million.

Meanwhile the same paper is reporting that previous Arsenal target Yann M’Vila will sign for QPR today for a fee of around £7 million.

    Typical Arsenal arrogance believing that he would want to join you. He is happy at West Ham and producing some of his best football ever, so doubt he’ll be going anywhere.
