The Senegal star has been amongst the Hammers’ best players this season and has caught the eye of the Arsenal scouts.
The North London side are ready to make their move for Diame after the tough-tackling player threatened to report his current side to FIFA.
Diame reportedly has a £3.5 million release fee clause in his contract and is said to be angry at what he perceives to be West Ham’s failure to respect his contract.
That has left Sam Allardyce pessimistic about the club’s chances of holding onto the player.
‘We are fairly confident with what is going on. Whatever Mo says to me today might change in an hour’s time. If Manchester United ring he won’t want to stay. It could change in a text or a phone call. There is a chance we will lose him but I hope not.’
Arsenal are thought to be favourites to land the player’s signature as they look to strengthen their squad as they push for a Champions League spot. They currently lie in sixth place, four point behind North London rivals Tottenham in fourth.
