Having Bowen sign a latest contract would ease Moyes’ fears about losing his best players. Nevertheless, some at West Ham consider Chelsea could still are available in with a bid for midfielder Declan Rice.
There was loads of interest within the England man, including from the Blues. The West Londoners are in a position to make signings following the takeover of Todd Boehly’s consortium.
Moyes has insisted that Rice isn’t on the market and it could take a bid of around £150m to bring West Ham to the negotiating table. He said in April: “The very first thing to say is that he isn’t on the market. When you have an interest, well, it should be north of that. £100m was low cost last summer.
“100 and fifty just now can be minimum but he isn’t on the market. What I do know is that it means there are only certain clubs that would even consider it.”
