Everton boss David Moyes is eyeing West Ham United midfielder Mohamed Diame.

The People says Hammers chief Sam Allardyce does not want to lose Diame but he has a £6million release clause in his contract.

Diame was due to join Liverpool in Kenny Dalglish's last deal before the Kop chief left - and he lived in the north west during his Wigan days. Diame, who was born in France but represents Senegal, joined the Hammers during the summer.
