Arsenal are weighing up a bid for West Ham United defender Winston Reid as a replacement for Thomas Vermaelen, according to the Daily Mirror.
The 26-year-old has been a superb performer for the Hammers in recent times, and could prove a good backup option for Arsene Wenger’s side following the departure of Vermaelen to Barcelona earlier this summer.
The likes of Kostas Manolas have also been linked with moves to the Gunners in recent times as they eye new defensive signings, but Reid may be a cheap option as he enters the final year of his contract at Upton Park.
Still, West Ham will no doubt want to keep one of their most important defensive players and avoid losing him to a London rival.
