West Ham are not in talks with Saudi Arabia club Al-Ettifaq over the possible transfer of Michail Antonio.
Reports from the middle east suggested Michail Antonio was in advanced talks with Steven Gerrard’s team over a possible move.
A senior West Ham insider denied any knowledge insisting no one is in talks with us from that Saudi club.
Antonio has less than 11 months on his existing contract and has been looking for a move and a big payday since the beginning of the year.
Michail is represented by agent Will Salthouse, and other sources suggest his representatives are in early talks with the Saudis.
West Ham are unlikely to sanction a move unless they receive significant money and can find a suitable replacement.
Steven Gerrard’s salary at Saudi Arabian club Al-Ettifaq has been revealed at a staggering £ 15.2 million a year.
Gerrard signed a three-year deal with the Saudi Pro League club.
