Wigan midfielder Mohamed Diame is the subject of a free transfer tussle between several Premier League clubs, with Liverpool reportedly leading the race for his signature.

According to Sky Sports, the 24-year-old - whose contract at the DW Stadium expires this June - has attracted interest from a host of sides both in this country and abroad.

Diame's agent, Willie McKay, explained that the Senegal international enjoys playing in England, and is hoping to stay.

"Momo is one of the best Bosmans around this summer and there are a lot of clubs at home and abroad keen on him, but Momo would like to stay in the Premier League and play for an ambitious club," he said.

"I have met with several Premier League clubs and we are considering all offers, but we have yet to make a decision on where Momo will be going."

Reds boss Kenny Dalglish has been strongly linked with a move for the African ace, as he looks to further bolster his midfield options at Anfield during the close season.

However, after the Scot was asked by Liverpool's owners to fly out to Boston for an end of season debrief, speculation has suggested Dalglish is at risk of being sacked ahead of the new campaign.

That could put pay to Diame's prospective move to Merseyside, but the midfielder will likely have a number of other options to consider.

"Momo is disappointed he did not play as much for Wigan in the second half of this season," added McKay. "But he enjoyed his time at Wigan, although he always saw it as a stepping stone to move to a bigger club."
