The 24-year-old started in the heart of Arsenal’s defense for the first Premier League match on Saturday as the Gunners sealed a 3-0 win over Fulham.
Holding has already drawn from Newcastle United this summer, but Arsenal pulled the plug on his loan transfer to St James’ Park earlier this month.
But according to The Sun, West Ham are planning to improve Newcastle’s proposal by offering Arsenal a £ 5m fee to sign Holding on loan for the rest of the campaign.
The report also states that West Ham is willing to cover the Holding’s salaries, which would free up space for Arsenal to make new signings.
West Ham has made a £ 30 million offer for James Tarkowski, but Burnley stands up for a £ 50 million fee.
Meanwhile, Mikel Arteta said after Arsenal’s win over Fulham that he intends to keep Holding at the club this season.
“I told him, change your mind because you’re not going anywhere,” Arteta told BT Sport.
‘Now why should I let him go? Are you already playing, so what else do you want? ‘
