West Ham are planning to raise a jackpot of least £130 million for player investment from the sale of at least two of last season’s squad.
With Declan Rice virtually at the point of joining Arsenal for £105 million, the club are also looking at raising more funds from the sale of and Ben Johnson.
Meawhile Lanzini has been linked with a move back to River Plate or to Turkish outfit Beskitas following the expiration of his contract.
Johnson meanwhile is being seen as a departure and the Hammers would be looking for a minimum of £10 million with Everton boss Sean Dyche keenly interested and – according to reports – Arsenal.
The pot could go even higher if Gianluca Scamacca and Michail Antonio move on as many expect with a ceiling of nearly £200 million available to the manager alongside his new technical director Tim Steidten who will have plyers he wants to bring into the club
