West Ham interested in trio of Premier League midfielders

West Ham have placed a trio of Premier League midfielders on their summer shortlist as the club consider replacements for Declan Rice.

Rice is expected to leave West Ham this summer with Arsenal leading the race for the England midfielder, who is keen to move on in search of Champions League football.


West Ham value Rice at around £100m and his sale would provide significant funds to re-invest. According to Football Transfers, the Hammers are considering approaches for Southampton captain James Ward-Prowse, Chelsea’s Conor Gallagher and Manchester United’s Scott McTominay.

West Ham are said to be ‘very keen’ on a deal for Ward-Prowse and are set to table an offer for the 28-year-old following Southampton’s relegation from the Premier League.

Ward-Prowse is valued at around £40m on the south coast and is expected to leave the club this summer to keep alive his international ambitions.

Gallagher is another player who could look for a new challenge as he looks to retain his place in the England squad. The 23-year-old struggled for regular minutes at Chelsea last season, after returning from a successful loan spell at Crystal Palace in 2021/22.

The midfielder was subject of a £45m approach from Everton in January, while Newcastle, Liverpool and Palace have all previously been credited with interest.

McTominay has also been identified as a potential replacement for Rice. The Scotland international started just 10 Premier League fixtures for Manchester United last season, following the arrival of Casemiro at Old Trafford. Newcastle are also said to be keen on the midfielder.
