Hammers prepare to sell striker

West Ham are likely to let Chicharito leave the club in the summer!

The manager of course will make the final decision but the Mexican has demonstrated regularly that he is unable to play in the one up system generally employed by Manuel Pellegrini

And we understand that he is unhappy at being unable to play regular first team football in a team that has been under performing and would be glad to get away in the summer.

That shows that nothing has changed since the winter when he came close to joining Valencia – a move which finally failed because the Spanish club wanted a loan deal before agreeing to a permanent buy at the end of the season.

The 30 year old has just one more year left on his contract and the club are more than likely to  sell now rather than allow him to leave on a free transfer at the end of this season.

They will be looking for a fee of around £10 million and some reports are already talking of a possible move to Newcastle.

  1. Chicarito has played more & he has been good even when not scoring. I think playing lone CF a proper #10 behind to help would help immensely. Like Nasri who unfortunately isn’t fit bc when is has been good or Mani in form.
    But if rather sell Arnie tho we won’t get the £45m we want we will get more for him the Chic.
    And he def doesn’t want to be here IMO & keeps getting ‘sick’ hasn’t had impact in 2019.
    Of our out & out CFs I’d sell them all not counting youth except Chic bc if we do get a Gomez or Mitrovic then HE would be great in front 2 with them.
    And even tho he got the shaft with Moyes & Bilic didn’t know what to do Pellegrini will get more out of him & he has been honest about wanting to play with at 30 can’t blame him but hasn’t caused issues like Arnie & brother
    Just IMO if like to keep him sell rest & keep Antonio too bflc versatility pace & offers something diff.

  2. Get rid of all the strikers actually sick of the petulant Austrian as well.They’re all 30 and just about done anyway.His knee isn’t great.
    Work on Zande Silva and get at a few younger one’s in who Pelle can work on.
