Former Manchester United forward Diouf is tied to Hannover until the summer of 2014.

He is, however, said to be a target for Borussia Dortmund, with nine goals in 17 appearances this season bringing him to the attention of the Bundesliga's top sides.

Hannover, though, are reluctant to discuss a sale and claim they are planning to offer fresh terms to the Senegalese frontman.

Manager Mirko Slomka told ZDF Media: "Mame Biram Diouf is an exceptional striker.

This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
