Wenger nears swoop for Diame

At the Football Transfer Tavern we feel Arsenal are facing somewhat of a transfer window inactivity crisis at the minute but according to Goal.com they are set to solve that with the capture of Mohamed Diame.

The West Ham United midfielder has been on the radar of Arsene Wenger for a while and as the French manager is looking to strengthen up his midfield, this represents the perfect move. The club are willing to pay the £3.5 million to trigger the release clause in the player’s contract and the player is understood to be willing to make the move.

Wenger of course is known for being shall we say frugal in the January transfer window and despite claiming he has money to spend after repaying the loans for the stadium, it seems a player like Diame is more in his range than shall we say Zaha.

Diame is seen as good value for money by the club and someone who will bring that bit of grit to the middle of the park. Given the growing discontent at the Emirates Stadium, a bid for the player cannot come soon enough. Especially given they are set to face Diame’s club, West Ham next. You have to love the irony of football.

Do you think the deal will be done by the weekend? Vote in our polls below.

    If Wenger was so keen on Diame he should have bought him a week ago. Then he could have played against Chelsea and then played for us against West Ham rather than the other way round. This is a rubbish rumour based on the fact we play WH tomorrow.

    A.W should tell his players to play 90min not just 45 min.
    Arsenal always give freedom to the oponent to play and wake up after being behind, remember city game then chelsea.

    i don’t really know what arsene is up to as an arsenal coach. he has succeeded in selling d club most valuable asset the club has and yet making no meaninggul impact to rebuild lt. No worry dey sell dey go. Na u remain when we go sell shame on you.
