Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has suggested that the club are interested in West Ham United midfielder Mohamed Diame.

The 25-year-old, who is expected to leave the London club after rejecting a new contract at Upton Park, is thought to be on Arsenal's transfer wishlist for this month.

"He has a great presence in the games, I have seen him have a big impact," Wenger said in a press conference. "He can drive the midfield."

Meanwhile, the Frenchman has insisted that the club were "never" interested in signing Crystal Palace youngster Wilfried Zaha.
