West Ham Face Fight to Keep Alvarez This Summer

West Ham United could be embroiled in a transfer battle to retain key midfielder Edson Alvarez this summer, according to sources from Football Insider.

The Mexican international has made a significant impact in his first year at the London Stadium, following a hefty £35.4 million move from Ajax last August.

However, reports suggest that Alvarez might be looking for a transfer .West Ham officials are understandably eager to hold onto Alvarez, whose impressive performances have earned him a place in the hearts of the West Ham faithful.

There are fears, however, that Alvarez could emulate teammate Lucas Paqueta by seeking a move to a club competing at the highest level.

Alvarez’s absence due to suspension has exposed his importance to the team’s balance, particularly in the midfield. His robust style of play, highlighted by a strong tackle rate and a knack for interceptions, has proven invaluable.

While attracting interest from top European clubs during his time at Ajax, West Ham managed to secure his signature last summer.

Alvarez has seamlessly slotted into the midfield role vacated by former captain Declan Rice. His statistics speak volumes, with an impressive average of tackles and interceptions per game.

West Ham are already grappling with the potential exit of Paqueta. Losing both midfield stars would be a major blow to the team’s aspirations.

The upcoming transfer window promises to be a busy one for West Ham United. Potential arrivals and departures will significantly shape the squad for the upcoming season, with the club facing a fight to retain some of their key players.

      Absolutely, seems to be a hell of a lot of click bait bullsh1t on here lately, not good at all.

  • Deathblow says:

    ‘IF’ this is true, then he’s another one who can **** off. I’m sure, like most West Ham fans, we don’t want a player at our club who doesn’t want to be here. Yup, the slug’s fault for not removing DM before he threw away any chance of qualifying for Europe, but seems like this is another player who wants to play in the puffed-up so-called ‘champions’ league and even Europa wouldn’t be enough. Hope Chelsea want him and we can fleece them like they did us for the crippled cat abuser.
    As long as we get a small fortune for him, and a player who doesn’t get booked so often, then get rid.

    All comes to one thing. The dwarfs inability to dispense with the services of Moyes . Because of his fear of a media backlash.

  • Clifford Edwards says:

    Don’t doubt there is a clause in his contract
    But I would bet it’s something like Paquetá has.
    Not the same amount but probably kicks in after two seasons.
    Good footballers will always attract attention
    Might be hard to keep him but if he goes then it will be on West Ham’s terms.

  • kcockayne says:

    It doesn’t cost him to be committed, Trev. Quite the opposite, in fact. I don’t doubt that he has performed very well for us, but that also puts him in the shop window for other clubs – if he wishes.

  • Jimbo says:

    “Reports Alvarez might be looking for a transfer” And a West Ham fan site chooses to publish this BS. Must do better chaps.

    Football insider is full of clickbait and BS.
    I suppose their writers can’t sit around all day clicking their fingers so they have to write about something even though it’s probably half truths.
    They has an article which said that Paqueta and Kudus would be probably leaving in the summer transfer window.
    The source was Frank Mcavennie.Now i loved frank as a player but i just don’t believe much from what comes out of his mouth these days.

  • D.f.butcher says:

    If he does go it’s probably down to moyes having ****ed him off
