West Ham United have shut down transfer rumours surrounding  Mohammed Kudus and Edson Alvarez. This comes after reported interest from Premier League giants (Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United) and Atletico Madrid for Alvarez.

The Hammers invested heavily in both players last summer, acquiring Kudus from Ajax for £38 million and Alvarez for £35.4 million. Unsurprisingly, they’re unwilling to lose these valuable assets so soon.

Both Kudus and Alvarez were key figures for West Ham last season despite the team’s struggles under David Moyes. Their consistent performances have earned them the backing of new manager Julen Lopetegui, who sees them as central to his plans.

While Jarrod Bowen’s goalscoring exploits dominated headlines, Kudus’ technical skills and exciting play were a source of fan enthusiasm. His audacious overhead kick against Manchester City is a testament to his talent.

Alvarez, the unsung hero, provided crucial defensive stability for West Ham. His experience and defensive presence will be vital under Lopetegui’s leadership.

While squad changes are expected under the new manager, West Ham has made it clear that Kudus and Alvarez are considered core members of the rebuild. Their retention ensures a strong foundation for the upcoming season’s challenges.

West Ham’s firm stance sends a clear message: they plan to compete under Lopetegui and are determined to build a successful team around their key players.
