The Hammers are fifth in the table at present after beating Everton.
The Hammers have enjoyed a fine first season under manager Slaven Bilic, competing at the top half of the table all year.
They now sit fifth in the table, just a point behind Manchester City in fourth and three behind Arsenal in third.
The Champions League is firmly within their grasp then as the campaign draws to a close.
And if the incentive of dining at Europe’s top table is not enough, they have no been offered further enticement in the form of a huge bonus.
If they were to finish in the top four, it would see their Premier League merit payments increased substantially, meaning around £7million being split between the squad, according to the Mirror report.
That is a significant upgrade on last season, when they shared a £2million bonus after finishing 12th under Sam Allardyce.
A tantalising reward for West Ham then, who will be hoping that they can secure a top four place to cap off a fantastic first season under Bilic.
