West Ham to offer star new contract amid Liverpool interest

West Ham United are planning to offer defender Aaron Cresswell another new contract to stave off interest from Liverpool, according to The Daily Mail.

The forward-thinking left-back has had an impressive 12 months with the Hammers and was a key reason with Slaven Bilic’s men were in the running for a top-four place this season.

Cresswell has become something of a fans favourite at the Boleyn Ground and many feel he was unlucky not to be called into Roy Hodgson’s England squad for Euro 2016.

The full-back is said to have impressed Liverpool scouts, while Manchester City are also believed to be keeping an eye on the former Ipswich man’s situation.

The report suggests that Cresswell will be offered a new contract to keep him at the London club ahead of a summer move to the Olympic Stadium.

The defender recently penned an extension to his terms and already has a long-term deal with West Ham.
