Having been nigh-on undroppable under Eddie Howe, Harry Arter has oddly fallen out of favour at Bournemouth this season. Since September 15th, the Irish international has started just four games, and in spite of a close relationship with his Howe, it looks like Arter could leave the club in January.
He is reportedly coveted at West Ham, and David Moyes has put (some) money where his mouth is in an attempt to bring him to the club. The issue, apparently, is the amount of money he has offered. Which is, according to Howe a (wait for it) DERISORY OFFER.
West Ham have been reportedly willing to part with £5 million for Arter, which evidently is not enough for Bournemouth. (A club which spent £20 million on Nathan Ake).
The Cherries apparently want double that fee for Arter, who West Ham view as a replacement for the long-serving Mark Noble.
