West Ham United are working behind the scenes to put the seal on two massive deals this summer says a club insider.

After a quiet January with no new arrivals, West Ham face a real crossroads this summer.

The Hammers have the second oldest squad in the Premier League and a host of players out of contract, retiring or set to leave as they are not part of David Moyes’s plans.

With several players already needed in key areas such as up front, central defence and at left-back – it means West Ham will require as many as six to 10 players in a big rebuild.

In an interview with Alan Shearer for The Athletic recently, Moyes made his feelings perfectly clear to West Ham’s owners over his summer transfer demands.

The Scot said West Ham have to show they can go out and get the right players, not only to progress, but just to remain where they are in and around the European mix in the fiercely competitive Premier League.

But keeping hold of their best players will be just as important for West Ham.

The club will resist selling talisman Declan Rice even though any prospects of the midfielder signing a new deal look bleak.

And supporters will be delighted by a new report from a strong source at the Hammers.

According to a West Ham insider speaking to Claret and Hugh, key players Jarrod Bowen and Tomas Soucek are in line for big new deals in a bid to keep them at the London Stadium.

There has been media speculation on the future of both Liverpool-linked Bowen and Soucek, who has thus far failed to agree terms on a new contract at West Ham.

“West Ham will be making a series of new offers to players at the end of the season with Jarrod Bowen and Tomas Soucek in line for big improvements,” Claret and Hugh state.

“The Hammers will want both to sign deals of no less than three years and preferably five and will start negotiations once the season comes to an end.”

It will be great news for West Ham if Bowen and Soucek agree contract extensions.
