West Ham United have reportedly expressed an interest in signing Mohamed Elneny from Arsenal this summer.
The Hammers have enjoyed a hectic transfer window so far, recruiting David Martin, Roberto, Pablo Fornals, and most recently, Sebastien Haller in a club-record deal worth £45 million.
However, it seems they are not finished just yet and have identified other potential targets who will be pursued before the window slams shut next month.
According to a report from Egyptian outlet Ahly News, West Ham have explored the possibility of signing Mohamed Elneny from Arsenal as Pedro Obiang nears a move to Sassuolo.
The former FC Basel midfielder failed to make an impression under Unai Emery at the Emirates Stadium last season, prompting claims that he could be offloaded this summer.
It is claimed that West Ham are willing to part with £9 million in their efforts to sign Elneny, but Arsenal would be keen to sell him for a higher sum as they aim to fund a big-money move for Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha.
Other holding midfielders who West Ham could consider signing
Pulgar had an excellent campaign with Bologna and impressed at Copa America with Chile. He would be an astute signing.
Demme has long been a consistent player for RB Leipzig. The German would be a clever addition to the team.
Berge is arguably the most promising player in Belgium right now. The Norway international could leave Genk this summer.
Barrios only joined Zenit in February, but he could be tempted away. He has long been linked with a move to the Premier League.
