In this article we will bring you all of today’s West Ham United transfer news. Make sure to check back tomorrow for more updates.
Declan Rice unhappy
Declan Rice has cemented himself as a West Ham standout in the past two seasons, as well as excelling for England at the European Championships, helping his nation to reach the final of the 2020 tournament.
However, he may not remain in east London for too much longer if reports are to be believed, with Chelsea and Manchester United both interested in landing the 100 million pound midfielder.
“West Ham guaranteed Declan Rice they would build the squad around him this summer. He feels this hasn’t happened yet due to the lack of signings.
“He currently won’t accept a new deal and wants to be notified of any bids.”

Indeed, according to trusted twitter account ExWHUemployee [via Simon Phillips], Rice feels as though the Hammers have not made enough progress this transfer window, and wishes to be kept in the know regarding any bids that come in for his signature.
Can either United or Chelsea tempt West Ham with a large enough bid?
Hammers battle Arsenal for Hibernian full-back
With Aaron Cresswell the undisputed first-choice left-back for West Ham, David Moyes will be looking for a backup option that can move into a first-team role in the future.
As a result, Josh Doig, currently of Hibernian, has emerged as a target, according to the Evening Standard.
The full-back, 19 years old, has impressed in the Scottish top tier, and has allegedly drawn interest from Arsenal previously.
Hibernian need to drop their asking price from around £5million before Arsenal and West Ham make a move.

However, neither side at present appears willing to meet the 5 million pound asking price that Hibs have set, with a fee around 2.5 million pounds the maximum that either club would be willing to offer at present, though this may change as the window rolls on.
Will West Ham be able to get their man?
West Ham identify Jesse Lingard replacement
Jesse Lingard proved a revelation at West Ham over the second half of last season, registering nine goals and five assists in his 16 appearances for David Moyes’ side, and helping to propel them into the Europa League.
However, it seems as though his future lies away from the London Stadium, with Ole Gunnar Solskjear having recently explained:
“I expect him at Man Utd at the start of the season.”
As a result, the Hammers have turned their attentions elsewhere, with their sights now seemingly set on West Bromwich Albion’s Matheus Pereira.
#Leicester and #WestHam are very interested in Matheus #Pereira and plan to submit proposals by the player to #WestBrom. 🇧🇷 #LFC #WHUFC #AlHilal is also interested in the player but does not present any proposal so far. 🔵 #transfers

The Brazilian creator impressed as part of a poor West Brom side last campaign, grabbing 11 goals and a further six assists in 30 Premier League appearances. Now in the Championship, he is expected to move on from the Hawthorns this summer.
Could East London be his next destination?
