West Ham have reportedly offered Gareth Barry a £65,000-per-week contract following the midfielder’s release by Manchester City. Barry, who spent last season on loan with Everton, is a target for the Merseyside club, while Arsenal are also in contention for his signature.

Barry performed to distinction during his temporary stint with Everton but, according to the Daily Mail, West Ham have placed themselves as the frontrunners to sign the player given the more lucrative terms they are prepared to pay.

Everton and Arsenal are both reported to have made proposals to Barry, although the £50,000-per-week on offer at Goodison Park and the Emirates Stadium respectively falls short of the potential West Ham deal.

What Everton and Arsenal do have, however, is the lure of European football, with the former having secured a place in Europa League and the Gunners in the Champions League for a 17th successive campaign, barring a catastrophe in the qualifiers.

But, with Barry aged 33, the ex-Aston Villa captain may see the opportunity to move to Upton Park as something of a final pay day in his career, while Sam Allardyce will provide the former England international with a starting place in his West Ham midfield.
