Hammer Antonio anxieties


Hammer Antonio anxieties

West Ham manager David Moyes faces another very tricky transfer window if the speculation currently doing the rounds proves to be correct.

The worst of it again concerns our strikers where both Michail Antonio and Gianluca Scamacca are being rumoured as likely departures along with with Danny Ings.

The Scamacca position is well know but the Antonio situation could hardly be worse for the Hammers as he is known to not be averse to moving as was the case in the winter window when Wolves made their interest known.

He remains probably the best of our strikers as things stand and is currently performing well for Jamaica in the States as he looks for more medals.

However, it would be no surprise were he to be looking to move on given his current contract runs out in 2024 although he has a one year option attached.

With a Declan Rice replacement required and possibly a couple of strikers too the new technical director, Moyes and David Sullivan are possibly heading into difficult times.
