West Ham United are determined to keep their star-players at the London Stadium this summer and are set to offer fresh terms to the most important members of their squad.
The Hammers have struggled to remain competitive in their debut season at the London Stadium and enter the midweek clash with Arsenal on the back of four consecutive Premier League defeats.
That form has left the future of manager Slaven Bilic shrouded in controversy but the Hammers are determined to bounce back next season, with their priority being keeping their star-men at the club.
Antonio has been a stand-out player for the Hammers this season, scoring nine goals, but his form has attracted interest from across the Premier League.
However, the Hammers are determined not to lose the services of the 27-year-old Nottingham Forest man and a source stated that Antonio will be amongst a number of players to earn new deals.
“Michail will be offered the new deal after what has been a fine season for him personally.”
“The club wants to keep its top players happy and he is certainly one of them, he’s been fantastic. There will be a few others who will get new contracts as well. It’s been a tough year but we’ll get there.”
Valued at £15.3m by TransferMarkt, Antonio’s form this season has seen him establish himself in Gareth Southgate’s England side and he’ll now be eyeing a place in the Three Lions’ World Cup squad next summer.
