Bournemouth have slapped a £15m price tag on midfielder Harry Arter amid interest from West Ham United, according to The Mirror.
Harry Arter has been one of West Ham’s main targets this January as David Moyes eyes midfield reinforcements.
After missing out on William Carvalho in the summer, the Irons have been left light in midfield.
As well as Arter, West Ham have been targeting a number of other central midfielders, including Leander Dendoncker of Anderlecht, Newcastle’s Jonjo Shelvey and Stoke’s Joe Allen.
West Ham have reportedly lodged a bid for Arter but it is well below Bournemouth’s valuation of their midfielder.
Eddie Howe has therefore told West Ham that the south coast club will demand £15m for the Republic of Ireland international.
Arter signed a new deal last summer but could be looking for a route out of Bournemouth after falling behind Lewis Cook in the pecking order under Howe.
Crystal Palace are another side who are interested in the 28-year-old as Roy Hodgson prepares to battle West Ham for his services.
West Ham are unwilling to pay over the odds for Arter and a £15m price tag could potentially put the Hammers off from making an improved bid this window.
