Mohamed Diame is about to join Everton according to French news outlet France Football
Diame played 33 times for West Ham last season and has a buy-out clause of £3.5m. Martinez is known to be an admirer of Diame having managed him at Wigan after he signed from French club Lens.
Having now spent four years in the Premier League Diame has plenty of experience in England and is generally deployed in the middle of the park to break up the play and distribute the ball.
To date the midfielder has played 129 top flight English matches and is also the current captain of the Senegal national team – having earned 19 caps for his country.
Interest from Arsenal and Spurs appears to have cooled on Diame in recent times as well, so if Martinez acts quickly the deal could be wrapped up before the competitors have any time to react.
