Arsenal reject west-ham third bid for Balogun, the gunners are only willing to let the player go with a £30 million which hummer first deal of worth £20 second £22 and third £25 rejected by arsenal

The Hammers have secured their Premier League status and progressed to the final of the Europa Conference League. Success in the final against Fiorentina in June 7 would see West Ham qualify for next season’s Europa League.

However, despite the season potentially being on course to be a successful one, change is afoot at the club.

Fulham’s Marco Silva remains in West Ham’s sights in the event David Moyes is axed. With regards to playing personnel, striker Gianluca Scamacca could return to Italy.

The Italy international, 24, has endured a torrid maiden campaign in England and has played second fiddle to Michail Antonio since the world cup break.

Gazzetta dello Sport claimed AC Milan were eyeing Scamacca up and a loan deal with an option or obligation to buy is wanted.

Another striker in Milan’s sights is Arsenal’s Folarin Balogun. However, according to Get Italian Football News, Balogun may actually wind up at West Ham in a move that would then allow Scamacca to return to his homeland.

Indeed, the report states West Ham are ready to rival Milan for Balogun who has bagged 20 goals for Ligue 1 side Reims this year. Balogun was previously labelled “frightening” when journalist Paul Brown discussed how high his ceiling as a centre-forward is.

Balogun was loaned out to the French side last summer, though is understood to be available for outright sale at season’s end.

Balogun does not wish to be loaned out once again, though does not have a natural place back in north London. Gabriel Jesus is Mikel Arteta’s first-choice at centre-forward. Eddie Nketiah is the primary back-up, meaning Balogun is the odd man out.

Reports have claimed Arsenal will seek around £25m-£30m for his signature. GIFN list a valuation of €30m (approx. £26m) in their piece.

Which the Hammers are not willing to pay.
