Arsenal and Manchester City are both targeting Lassana Diarra according to recent reports.

The 28-year old French midfielder is currently with Russian club Lokomotiv Moscow but could be on the move back to the Premier League this January with news that the Gunners and City have made enquiries.

Diarra is contracted at Lokomotiv until 2016 and is currently on more than £65,000-a-week which could scupper a move but the interest is certainly there for the former France international.

Diarra, of course, has previously had a spell with Arsenal - in 2007/08 - and has also spent time with Le Havre, Chelsea, Portsmouth, Real Madrid and Anzhi Makhachkala.
