Merseysiders want United hitman

Manchester United forward Mame Biram Diouf is set to leave the club in January after he confirmed there had been offers for him.


The report in the Metro suggests the Senegalese striker has fallen out of favour at Old Trafford since returning from a season-long loan with Blackburn Rovers.


Sir Alex Ferguson originally had high hopes for the youngster he signed from Molde in Norway, but he has not developed as first planned when he made the move.


“There are several lines open, but nothing is decided,” Metro quotes Diouf as saying.


“Everton, Wigan Athletic, Borussia Monchengladbach, Hannover, Nuremberg, Borussia Dortmund and Hoffenheim are all interested.”


The report goes on to suggest that any move to Barclays Premier League sides Everton and Wigan Athletic would be on a loan basis.

It also states that Ligue 1 side Brest would be willing to pay up to £2 million for the 24-year-old who scored six times in 29 appearances last season for Rovers.


Diouf’s contract runs out on 2013 but he is unlikely to get an extension and the report says United have decided to let him leave if the right offer should come in.
