West Ham midfielder Mohamed Diame still reckons he’s on Liverpool’s transfer hit-list, with the Senegalese international refusing to rule out a summer move to the Premier League leaders.

Diame, 26, had been linked with a move to Anfield before he joined West Ham two years ago, but still insists that a move could be on the cards, claiming that he is still on their to-do list,

‘Two years ago (before joining West Ham) I wanted to join a team with ambitions,’ Diame said (quoted by the Mail),

‘Overall, my season has been okay, although I think it is not up to last season. I started badly, but gradually I got my bearings.

‘Liverpool? I can’t tell you if I will be a Liverpool player next season. But I think my name is still on their wanted list.

‘I don’t hide it, I’m ambitious and I want to join a top-six side. I am 26 years old and it’s time to take that step.’

It has been a rather hit-and-miss season for Diame, who has only played the full 90 minutes for the Hammers once in the last 14 games.

But that hasn’t stopped him being linked a number of top clubs this past year, including Liverpool, with Chelsea and Arsenal also said to be eyeing him up last January.
