David Moyes could be forced to sell to buy

A number of players could be available given the right offers  to help fund David Moyes’ summer transfer kitty as he attempts to snap up young hungry players to reshape his West Ham squad.

While players like Declan Rice will be off-limits this summer a number of other players will be allowed to leave if club valuations are met.

Those who would be allowed to depart for the right price are thought to include Felipe Anderson, Fabian Balbuena, Ablian Ajeti, Manuel Lanzini, Arthur Masuaku, Jack Wilshere, Ryan Fredericks and Andriy Yarmolenko but literally no-one is safe if the right money is offered.

West Ham first needs to know which division they will be playing in next season before a transfer strategy and target list can be drawn up. With a football financial crisis due to the global pandemic, transfer funds will be tight and it is likely to a case of sell to buy in a depressed transfer market.

The transfer window is likely to open on 27th July 24 hours after the end of the 2019/2020 Premier League season.

  1. It looks like West Ham have a squad, bloated with attacking midfielders/wingers and realistically won’t get transfer value for the likes of Snoddy, Antonio, Wilshire and not much for Yarmarlenko, which makes me think they will stay…. even if it would save £320k a week!

    Felipe Anderson £85k a week doesn’t look value so he could be off?

    • I think anderson looks very good value when you compare his wages to wilshere.Even if wilshere was fit i know who i would rather have.
