West Ham slap £7m price tag on Arsenal and Liverpool-linked contract rebel

West Ham are reportedly looking for a £7m fee in order to sell Winston Reid this month.

The harsh reality of success is dawning on West Ham right now, with star centre back Winston Reid seemingly set for the Upton Park exit.

The 26-year-old New Zealand international has impressed with the Hammers in the last 18 months, and West Ham have been trying desperately to secure his future in East London.

However, the former Midtjylland defender is out of contract at the end of this season and is set to leave the club according to manager Sam Allardyce.

"There is no future for Winston Reid at West Ham at the moment. His contract finishes on June 30. He hasn't said he's going to sign or that he's not going to sign," said Allardyce.

"I'm airing on the side that he isn't going to sign by the feel of it and look of it. Knowing how the football world works, talking to managers about the situation it's very unlikely Winston will sign for us given what people are saying to me," he added.

The likes of Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United have all been linked with moves to sign Reid, and according to the Daily Mail, West Ham have set their price.

A bid of £7m would reportedly be enough to land Reid this month, with West Ham attempting to get money for Reid rather than lose him for nothing in six months time.

Arsenal were reportedly lining up a £4m bid for Reid, which would be well short of West Ham's alleged asking price, meaning negotiations could be difficult between the Hammers and any interested clubs.
