Published Add your comment

West Ham will do everything in their power to keep midfielder Mohamed Diame from the clutches of Arsenal, according to the club's co-chairman David Gold.

Diame's future was the subject of intense speculation during the January transfer window, with Arsenal one of several clubs linked with a move for the Senegal international.

Arsenal has once again been suggested as a potential destination for Diame this summer as Arsene Wenger strives desperately to reinforce his squad before the summer transfer deadline.

The frantic nature in which Arsenal have been conducting their transfer business has been cause for concern for some West Ham fans, with one asking Gold on Twitter what the club would do if the Gunners made an approach for Diame.

In his response, Gold attempted to allay fears that the 26-year-old could leave, claiming the club will remain resolute if a bid for the player is made.

He tweeted: "We are doing everything possible to keep Diame."

West Ham, meanwhile, continue to look to recruit a striker before September 2, with Gold confirming the must first sell players before they are able to make any more acquisitions.
