Michail Antonio could be in line for a new West Ham deal despite only signing a new four-year contract with the club in July, according to a report.
The Mirror claim the attacking midfielder, 26, could earn a second contract in months if he is able to maintain his individual form this season, which has seen him bag five goals in seven Premier league games.
This despite the struggles on the pitch for the Hammers, which has seen them fall into the relegation zone with four points from seven games.
Slaven Bilic’s side have recorded just one Premier League win all season and have conceded a league high of 17 goals.
Despite that versatile attacker Antonio has managed to maintain his form, which has seen him earn a second call-up to the national squad.
Antonio previously earned his first call-up when then-England manager Sam Allardyce called him up to the international stage during his short-reign as boss.
However, he is yet to make his debut for his country, but could feature for Gareth Southgate’s side, when they take on Malta and Slovenia in World Cup qualifiers.
Antonio moved to east London from Nottingham Forest last season and has scored 14 goals and provided five assists in 44 appearances.
