Michail Antonio is in line for a ‘very good deal’ if and when he signs a new deal with West Ham United according to club insiders Claret and Hugh.

The 31-year-old has been in brilliant form for the Hammers since football resumed after the first lockdown in June last year.

Antonio is now one of the most important players that David Moyes has at his disposal at the London Stadium.

Micky only recently signed a new contract with West Ham, thought to be worth around £100k-a-week The Mirror (November 15th, page 74).

It seems as though his fine recent displays may well see him rewarded once again…if he continues to produce the goods over a sustained period of time.

Michail Antonio in line for new West Ham deal

The experienced attacker has bagged four goals and three assists in four Premier League games so far this season. He racked up 20 goals and eight assists during 50 Premier League appearances over the past two seasons (Transfermarkt).

Antonio has proved himself from a physical perspective over the past few months as well. The last hamstring injury that he suffered was way back in April.

 

And Claret and Hugh claims that if he continues to prove that his injury problems are a thing of the past and keeps banging in the goals on the pitch, he will be in line for a ‘very good deal’.

The one real worry we have with this is the fact that Antonio has committed to the Jamaican national team.

With so many international games on the horizon, it would be no surprise at all if Antonio broke down with a hamstring injury just after being handed a shiny new deal. It would be classic West Ham. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen though. Perhaps it’s just the pessimist in me!

If Micky does maintain his fitness and manages to score 15-20 goals this season, he will be more than deserving of a new contract.
