Hammers ready to let winger go as Roma hover

sofiane-feghouli-774898West Ham are ready to allow Sofiane Feghouli to leave the club if they receive an offer of around £7 – £8 million..

The Algerian winger will slip further down the pecking order should the club clinch the signature of Robert Snodgrass over the next few hours.

The Irons are aware of interest from Roma they won’t stand in his way if the Italian outfit or any other club moves in for him.

Snodgrass is expected to become first in line to take on the right wing role under the new system developed by the manager following Dimi Payet’s mutiny with Michail Antonio joining AC through the middle.

The entire buying policy this January has focused on British players after the events of the summer and although Feghouli’s performances have improved since the Crystal Palace game he has never fully convinced Bilic

  1. I would be very disappointed if that really happened, as he has shown signs of spectacular improvement. Like many players, he just needs minutes of game time on a consistent basis. And if he leaves we won’t have seen the best of him, which would be a pity. Just ask any Valencia fan what they think of him.

  2. Don’t believe this for a second. We need adequate cover and we don’t need the money especially as he came on a free transfer. Snodgrass will have to work to get into the team.

  3. we haven’t seen the best of him yet. sell in the summer if still unconvincing but for now as has been said he needs match time to fully adapt and we need cover. we’ve lost zaza and he was the biggest disappointment in a good few years. I am choosing to forget about tore.

  4. The trouble is 3 into 1 want go.
    And we now have Snodgrass, Feghouli and Ayew all fighting for the same position.
    I’m still somewhat surprised given that Faghouli is just starting to come good and given we have this position covered why we haven’t concentrated on a striker and cover for right back. I have a sneaking feeling that this is a board selection being imposed on Bilic.

  5. He has played pretty well recently,not up to his Valencia standards when i saw him but he seems to be improving.Shame if he goes but i wont exactly be going in to 10 days of mourning 😁

  6. Also, why is it that we pay top dollar for anyone we go after, yet we sell at rock bottom prices. £6 to £7M seems to cheap. I know he was acquired on a free, but surely worth more?

  7. “The entire buying policy this January has focused on British players after the events of the summer”

    We’ve only signed one player this January and he’s Portuguese!

    • I think we all know this window was based around buying british or british based Ray,its been said enough.Come on you are above being a smart ar*e over some wording 😁

  8. Seems about right to me Eug.Got to be £9-10 mill for him absolutely top whack.I mean he aint even a first team regular really is he.Just a squad player.Other clubs aint going to go large on someone like that imo 😏

  9. What is the club thinking if the allow Feghouli to go, he starts showing his ability, in the last 2 games he was doing something most of his team mates haven’t in closing down opponents high up the pitch, competing for everything, he is good on the ball and like Antonio is also excellent arriving late in the box in goal scoring positions. I hope this turns out not to be true, the club say they are ambitious and want to compete in Europe and go far in the cups for that you need a squad, I would say Feghouli has been better than our marquee signing Ayew so why not sell him for 20 million if you are going to replace someone and see if Feghouli continues to improve… probably getting het up about more click bait anyway so will shut up 😀

  10. I wouldn’t let Feghouli go, I’d give him a good run until the end of the season. Snodgrass on the other hand is a decent squad player though not a first team starter (he’s slow). Because hes having a hot streak at Hull this season we’re willing to pay over the odds for him – That he’s 29 and never been considered by a big club should say it all. I thought we wanted to push for the higher end of the league, not buy players we think will keep us off the bottom 3. We’re not going to get relegated now so why not save our cash for some serious players in the summer and give our young lads a go?

  11. These pop ups are doing my head in. Have always liked following chat in here, but patience is wearing thin!!

  12. install adblock that will get rid of the pop ups

  13. Same as lads,i dont care about ads down the sides & elsewhere but these pops ups are doing my nut 😬😁

  14. Blimey. I am doing well if I can find switch on this thing! Adblock? Install? Where are my kids and grandkids when I need them? I’ll just moan instead Huw if it’s all right with you. Do what comes naturally. But thanks for trying to help.

    Think it is a shame to lose this player without giving him a real chance. But I guess the wage bill becomes an issue. Does anybody still bother about FFP though. Get the impression the big clubs sussed out how to fiddle that.

    • Lol 64 its easy to install,i had it once for this place but binned it.These pop ups are going to send me loopy soon though 😁

  15. Just popped up from Valencia to say give the lad the whole season and I will eat my donkeys hat if we are not all singing his praise
    Does all the right things as a team player and on the ball has that bit of class we need,
    Also he has not moaned once about bench warming
    Popping off now

  16. Totally agree Bubbs the board must show they are serious by getting a good squad together also they should be encouraging Bilic to start playing some of the youngsters, I am fed up seeing rave reviews about one to watch or a future prospect it is about time they played some of them.

  17. This season is basically finished for us with nothing to aim at but the highest finishing position we can get. We need back up in a very thin squad. Just look at our bench most weeks. Think RS is a very astute buy at a very decent price. Why should Feghouli have to leave? Don’t all decent teams have good cover in most positions? Too many people looking at the worst possible scenario. COYI X

  18. I would be very disappointed to see him go after the last two performances. Showed more than Ayew.

  19. YOU WANNA LET ‘FEGHOULI’ GO….ARE YOU MAD!…..ON THIS ONE,YOUR GETTING IT WRONG.YOU HAVE TO LISTEN TO THE FANS.

  20. We should keep Feghouli, he’s just finding his feet. Could still do with a right back though.

  21. I will NOT be happy if we let Feghouli leave he hasn’t had the goals that Sndgrass has but how much of a chance has the lad been given..??? He’s looked great in the last couple of games, settled in a lot more than Ayew, looked like he gives a s##t. Terrible piece of business if we let him go..
