The report explains that West ham manager David Moyes wants to sign a new defender in this current transfer window and the club could afford a loan for him, before possibly looking to sign him the following year.

It is claimed that Arsenal could potentially allow their 24-year-old to exit on loan due to their numerous options in the heart of defence.

With injuries currently affecting the Arsenal squad, Holding has played the opening two games of the season and impressed in back-to-back wins.

Mikel Arteta’s team defeat Liverpool in the FA Community Shield in the season curtain-raiser and followed that up by beating Fulham 3-0 over the weekend in the first game of the league season.

Meanwhile, West Ham lost 2-0 at home to Newcastle United in their opening match and there is a lot of negativity currently surrounding the London side. And one of that is the defense line.
