The Gunners have had scouts closely following Reid’s displays for much of this season, and are now lining up a superb bargain move for the New Zealand international, who is out of contract at Upton Park this summer.

The 26-year-old looks an ideal solution to Arsenal’s current defensive problems, with Laurent Koscielny missing a large chunk of the campaign through injury and with little in the way of backup currently available to Arsene Wenger after the club offloaded Thomas Vermaelen to Barcelona during the summer.

Reid’s contract situation means he is likely to move on the cheap this winter as the Hammers look to avoid losing him for nothing next season, and £4m could be enough to seal a superb piece of business for the north London giants.
