Allardyce: No Arsenal offer for Diame
West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce has said the club have not received an offer from Arsenal for Mohamed Diame.
Diame, 25, has been linked with a move away from Upton Park during the winter transfer window, amid reports he has a release clause in his contract of £3.5 million.
It is claimed that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is an admirer of the Senegal international, who joined West Ham from Wigan last summer, leading to suggestions an approach could be forthcoming.
However, Allardyce is quoted by Sky Sports as saying: "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."
The Hammers boss also commented on the prospect of bringing Blackburn left-back Martin Olsson to Upton Park, adding: "We have not made any further bids for Martin Olsson."
