West Ham are planning to raid Arsenal in the summer transfer window, according to latest reports. The Hammers, who will be moving to Olympic Stadium from next season onwards, are reportedly interested in Arsenal duo of Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Essex newspaper Brentwood Gazette claims that the Hammers manager Slaven Bilic has identified Arsenal speedster Walcott as a main transfer target for the next season. According to the report, the Hammers want to make a marquee signing at the new stadium next season, and they believe Walcott fits the bill.
The report claims that the North London club values Walcott at £26 million. The 26-year old, who scored a brace in the 4-0 FA Cup win over Hull City on Tuesday, has been hit-and-miss this season, and Arsene Wenger could consider selling him in the summer.
Another report from Daily Mail claims that West Ham are also interested in Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
According to the report, the Hammers are willing to £15 million to secure the signing of the 22-year old.
Chamberlain, who is currently nursing an injury, has also failed to impress this season. He has also been linked with moves to Chelsea and Liverpool recently.
