The departures of Adrian, Andy Carroll and Samir Nasri, Edmilson Fernandes and Lucas Perez in June have saved around £300,000 per week off West Ham’s wage bill or £15.6m annually.
Marko Arnauotovic’s £125,000 per week and Sam Byram’s £25,000 per week pay packets have saved another £150,000 per week bringing the total to something around £450,000 per week or £23.4m annually.
The new signings of Roberto, David Martin and Pablo Fornals are claimed to have added less than £85,000 per week and with Sébastien Haller on a reported £70,000 per week meaning the total additions add up to a reasonable £155,000 per week which leaves around £295,000 per week to play with equating to £15.3m per annum.
Jordan Hugill £35,000 per week. Reece Oxford £20,000 per week, Pedro Obiang £50,000 per week and Javier Hernandez £145,000 per week could yet be offloaded changing the figures yet again before the transfer window ends.
The Hammers are still keen to trim their wage bill from last season to stay within FFP regulations but with these numbers, they could trim the wage bill and re-invest in a loan or free agent before the window ends.
