West Ham Faces Exodus

West Ham United is bracing for a significant squad overhaul this summer, with as many as five first-team players potentially leaving the club, according to The Athletic.

The report details that Aaron Cresswell, Angelo Ogbonna, Ben Johnson, and Divin Mubama are all set to depart when their contracts expire at the end of the season.

Furthermore, star midfielder Lucas Paqueta is also anticipated to leave due to a £85 million release clause becoming active in June. Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly circling, ready to activate the clause.

Nevertheless this exodus could be a positive opportunity for West Ham. The squad, seen as somewhat aging, could benefit from fresh talent and added depth.

With David Moyes expected to leave and a potential shift towards a more attacking style, the incoming manager will have the freedom to bring in players that fit his tactical vision.

The departures will free up significant funds in terms of transfer fees and wages, allowing West Ham to reinvest in replacements. This paves the way for a potentially busy summer transfer window for the Hammers.

Overall, West Ham United is on the cusp of a major squad transformation. While the loss of key players will be felt, it presents an opportunity for the club to rebuild and move forward under a new manager and potentially a new style of play.

    Hopefully whoever the manager will be the board need to make sure that the money is available to bring in the type of players he wants instead of has beens like in the past if we get the right manager and the owners make sure the funds are in place then bringing quality players and retaining the best players we have now won’t be a issue if not then it’s going to be a major problem
