Mohamed Diame: No bid from Arsenal for West Ham midfielder

Mohamed Diame: No bid from Arsenal for West Ham midfielder

The Senegalese only joined the Hammers during the summer but he has been linked with a January departure after it was revealed a clause in his contract could allow him to leave for just £3.5m.

Arsenal have had a disappointing first half of the season and are sixth in the Premier League table, 21 points behind leaders Manchester United and six points off fourth-place Spurs.

So Gunners manager Arsene Wenger is expected to reinforce his squad during the transfer window, with a move for Diame suggested.

But Allardyce said: "You are always worried about losing players but we have not had a bid from Arsenal for Mo Diame. I can't see where he would fit into their side."

Allardyce is also hoping to bring in more new players during January, with Blackburn left-back Martin Olsson on his list.

But after an initial enquiry, Allardyce revealed: "We have not made any further bids for Martin Olsson."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
