Premier League side West Ham United are considering making a move for Spanish midfielder, Mikel Arteta, according to reports from the Brentwood Gazette.
West Ham United have made a very promising start to their Premier League campaign so far and as things stand, the Hammers certainly have a very good chance of making it into one of the European places this season.
Manager Slaven Bilic is not taking anything for granted though and is looking to improve his side’s chance of earning a place in the top four by signing a couple of new players during the January transfer window.
A host of names have been linked with a move to West Ham over the past few weeks and now according to reports from the Brentwood Gazette, it has been claimed that the Croatian manager is considering a swoop for Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta.
Arteta has struggled for regular first team minutes at Arsenal due to the emergence of Francis Coquelin and it is believed that the Hammers are looking to lure the experienced midfielder away from the Emirates Stadium in January with the promise of regular first team football.
