West Ham making big Arsenal move despite Arteta hint

West Ham United are reportedly making moves to secure the signing of Arsenal defender Rob Holding on a loan move this summer transfer window.

The young English defender seems to be living the potential he showed when he first came to the limelight with the opportunities given to him by manager Mikel Arteta. He was also in a fine display in Arsenal’s season’s opener against Fulham.

Before now, there were claims he would be leaving the club but that dust has been settled with the Spanish boss insisting that he is going nowhere and will be a part of his team despite the options available.

The assurance of Rob Holding’s stay has not stopped West Ham United from making moves to bring him to the other side of London on a season-long loan deal.

It is understood that they plan to lure the North London club with a £5 million fee for the loan deal but from all indications, it will not be accepted by the Gunners.

Arsenal can boast of a number of players at the centre-back with new signing William Saliba yet to make his debut while David Luiz was unavailable in Fulham’sgame.

Sokratis papa, Mustafi, and Calum Chambers are yet to leave the club which makes them options at the moment.
