Hammer could be sacrificed this summer

Hammer Manuel Lanzini could be sold this summer to provide additional funds to reshape the manager’s squad,

The 27-year-old has started just two league matches this season and could be available for £15m

The attacking midfielder who has been the subject of interest from Turkey and the Middle East, has made 151 appearances for the Hammers since signing in 2015, scoring 22 goals and making 23 assists.

Bought for £10.8m in 2016 after a year on loan from Al-Jazira the Argentine international has failed to fully recover his form after a serious injury while on World Cup training.

Yarmolenko was bought in the summer of 2018 for £18m from Borussia Dortmund but could be sold for around £7m if reports are to be believed, the 31-year-old will have just 12 months left on his contract in June and has just suffered a serious knee ligament injury which could keep him out for months.

Felipe Anderson who was bought for £36m from Lazio in the same summer of 2018 could be sold for just £17m.  He is currently on loan to FC Porto for the season with the Hammers desperate to recoup some of the money they laid out for him during Manuel Pellegrini’s tenure.
Together with the proceeds of the sale of Sebastian Haller for £20m to Ajax,  Moyes could have £59m to spend this summer if all valuations were realised and bids accepted.

  1. I honestly do agree with the sale of Lanzini Yarmolenko and Anderson. Plus I would also sell a couple of other fringe players as well, Fredericks for example, but in all honestly I do not see any one wanting them and wouldn’t be surprised if no bids are received for them

  2. If you seriously believe that anyone is going to pay £15 million for Lanzini, you really haven’t been keeping up. We

  3. I think we’d do very well to find a club willing to pay 15m for Lanzini in the current climate.

    I’d love to see him hit some form before the end of the season and stay with us, fingers crossed for him.

  4. Anderson has to go. Lanzini and Fredericks can play Cup matches and provide rest for the others.

  5. If hes not injured again before then I think 15 million is a fair price.

  6. Get shot of him on a free. How many influential games has he had in the five years he’s been at the club? 10. Max. Tited of seeing him strolling around the pitch, stroking the ball from side to side. Out him and sign Lingard, in my view.

  7. I think your right although probably less than £10m for Lanzini, same for Yarmo and Anderson maybe £27 – 30 m for all 3 put the money on a decent cf 😀

  8. Lanzini seemed off the pace tonight. Commentators said it was his birthday today, so maybe he had too much birthday cake or Pearce and Nolan gave him the bumps in training. Benrahma looked more effective in his short cameo appearance.
