Leicester City's Harvey Barnes

According to 90min, West Ham plan to bolster the squad with a dynamic winger and Barnes has become a priority target. The Hammers qualified for the Europa League after winning the Europa Conference League, their first trophy in 43 years, and want to improve the squad considerably.

Declan Rice's imminent £105m move to Arsenal is expected to fund significant activity transfer in the window with the club believed to be targeting a new defender and two central midfielders ahead of the new season.

Barnes scored 13 Premier League goals last season but was unable to prevent Leicester from dropping into the Championship.
