According to a report in The Sun, Bournemouth have been angered by West Ham United’s offer for Harry Arter.

West Ham have made a bid to sign Arter this month, but their offer was only £5 million.

Bournemouth would only consider offers of £15 million for the Republic of Ireland international, and reportedly feel that West Ham’s offer is derisory.
