Back in the days when the January transfer window was open and before the UK was hit by a freak weather front that has frozen us all to the core, West Ham United were showing a serious interest in the Bournemouth midfielder, Harry Arter.
In fact, the Hammers were so keen to sign the 28-year-old midfielder that two bids were made, to Bournemouth, for his services.
But, despite not being a regular in the Bournemouth starting eleven, the Bournemouth boss, Eddie Howe, decreed that the player wasn`t for sale.
However, according to the news vehicle, The Express, West Ham United are determined to get their man.
Our referenced source is reporting that David Moyes is looking at offering Bournemouth the sum of £10 million in an attempt to persuade them to let the player leave the Vitality Stadium this summer.
Whether this latest offer will suffice remains to be seen, however, here at Vital West Ham we`ll endeavour to keep an eye out for any developments with regards to this piece of transfer tittle-tattle.
