Arsenal swoop for midfield rock – report

Various reports this morning suggest that Arsenal are keen on taking midfield powerhouse Mohamed Diame to The Emirates this January.

Sam Allardyce has calmed talk of a transfer by stating that no bid has been received from Arsenal but, with Abou Diaby constantly fighting injury, Arsene Wenger may well fancy bringing in a box to box buccaneer to complement his artistic midfield.

While Diame has had a brilliant season at West Ham Arsenal have long been criticised for a lack of mettle down the spine of the team. Diame, with his huge frame, great athleticism and eye for the odd howitzer of a goal, could well tempt Arsene Wenger.

Some reports claim that Arsenal scouts will travel to Old Trafford to watch the Senegal international, who left Wigan last summer, in action tonight in the FA Cup 3rd round replay between Manchester United and West Ham.
