West Ham United midfielder Momo Diame hopes to sign for Arsenal.

The People says Diame has told pals he would love to join Arsenal this week, writes the Sunday People.

The 25-year-old West Ham midfielder has been fined a week's wages by boss Sam Allardyce for turning up late for a team meeting on Thursday.

Tottenham could also make a late bid, but West Ham will want to bring in a replacement before Diame - signed from Wigan last June - goes anywhere.
