What the papers say West Ham are optimistic about their chances of signing Arsenal and England under-21 striker Eddie Nketiah this summer, according to the Evening Standard. The 21-year-old has become a prime target in the Hammers’ search for a new striker after selling Sebastian Haller in January and with Michail Antonio having battled injuries this season. The Hammers’ hopes of signing Nketiah have been boosted by news Arsenal have re-signed his fellow forward Folarin Balogun.

What the papers say West Ham and England midfielder Declan Rice is keen to join Manchester United, according to the Manchester Evening News. The 22-year-old is reported to have quizzed United players Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw about aspects of the club while on England duty last month. Rice, who is contracted until 2024, would not come cheap, with Hammers boss David Moyes estimating he is worth far more than £100million.

What the papers say Edinson Cavani‘s potential departure from Old Trafford has been complicated by a £2million clause in the striker’s contract, according to the Mirror. Manchester United will have to pay the fee if they failed to trigger a one-year contract extension for the 34-year-old Uruguay international, who arrived in the north in October after leaving Paris St-Germain and has been linked with Boca Juniors.
