Janos Toth, the agent of Lens midfielder Alou Diarra, claims discussions have taken place with a view to a possible transfer to Ashburton Grove.

Rumours have been flying around for well over a year as Arsene Wenger looks to strengthen his midfielder after the sale of Patrick Vieira last summer.

The agent claims that Wenger is very interested although no formal offer has been tabled.

‘Arsene likes Alou a lot, discussions have taken place but no offer has yet been made,’ said Toth.
