Powerhouse admits desire to sign for Liverpool

Long-term Liverpool target and West Ham powerhouse Mo Diame has revealed that he had his heart set on a move to Anfield but instead had to settle for West Ham after Kenny Dalglish was fired.

Diame joined the Hammers on a free transfer from Wigan in 2012 but he has revealed he came agonisingly close to ending up at Anfield.

As quoted on the Daily Express website, he said: “In my head I was already in Liverpool.

“It was next, I told everyone that I was there. It was as if one of my greatest wishes to wear the Liverpool shirt had been accomplished.

“One day my agent and I went to the training centre to see Kenny Dalglish, who was the coach.

“I found myself amongst photos of Gerrard and company, all these great players. I was proud of myself.

“I arrived in the office and Dalglish said ‘I can’t guarantee you’ll play every match but we have a lot of games to play’.

“He talked to me about the European Cup, my benefits and the pre-season trip to America. He sold me the dream!

“So I went on holiday expecting my agent to make contact with Liverpool’s management to discuss the financial arrangements.

“Unfortunately, Dalglish was fired and all negotiations stopped.”
