West Ham make £60 million double bid for Harry Maguire and Scott McTominay

West Ham United have made a double bid of £60 million for Manchester United duo Harry Maguire and Scott McTominay, according to stunning reports.
The England defender's future at Man United has been clouded by uncertainty ever since he lost the captaincy.
As for the Scotland international, a host of teams are keeping tabs on him ahead of the transfer deadline.
According to The Athletic, West Ham are hoping to lure both players to London, with the club making a £60 million double bid.
Man United rejected a £20 million bid for Maguire last month and dismissed an enquiry close to £30 million for McTominay.
West Ham boss David Moyes is thought to be a big admirer of the pair and is pushing for their signings ahead of the new Premier League campaign.
Despite the arrival of Mason Mount, Erik ten Hag wants to hold onto McTominay, but is open to offloading the player if the money becomes too good to turn down.
Maguire, meanwhile, is deemed surplus to requirements, with West Ham edging closer to Man United's valuation of around £30 million.
He's thought to be behind the likes of Raphael Varane, Lisandro Martinez and Victor Lindelof, with Jonny Evans also on the books following his short-term deal.
The Hammers are keen to strengthen their squad following the mega sale of Declan Rice, who joined Arsenal in a deal worth £105 million.
They appear to be closing in on the signing of Edson Alvarez from Ajax and have held talks with Southampton for James Ward-Prowse.
