West Ham open to offers for four Hammers

snoddy5West Ham will listen to offers for four Hammers in this summer transfer window.

Enner Valencia is available for offers over £5m after his season-long loan with Everton came to an end and they decided against taking up a £10m option.

The Ecuador international cost the Hammers £12 million but with two years left on his deal the board are prepared to let him go on the cheap to get his £40,000 per week wages off the wage bill.

valenciaValencia scored 10 goals in 61 appearances for West Ham after his move from Mexican side Pachuca in the summer of 2014.

Robert Snodgrass is another player who West Ham would let go assuming they can recover the majority of the £10.2m they forked out for him in January this year.

Sofiane Feghouli is also said to be available for the right price. He was signed on a free transfer last Summer and while he showed promise at the end of the season it is believed that the Hammers would not stand in his Fletch1way if a big offer came in for the Algerian. Bein Sports have suggested  Turkish side Galatasary have bid £4m for the winger but the player has yet to decide his future.

The fourth player is Ashley Fletcher. The Hammers paid around £1m in compensation to Manchester United but there appears to be some interest in the youngster and West Ham could make a handsome seven-figure profit on the striker.  Huddersfield have been linked with the player with a fee as high as £5m mentioned. Slaven Bilic will make no decision over Ashley Fletcher’s future until he has sorted out his own striker comings and goings.

We understand that the manager remains uncertain of the former Manchester United youngster and is unready to make snap decisions. Fletcher made 20 appearances off the bench – often very late in proceedings.

  1. Snodgrass – yup
    Valencia – yup
    Fletcher – agree IF we get some decent strikers in
    Feghouli – disappointing if true. Showed real signs in the last few games.

    • Spot on not a pace player but when he finally for a run of games he was good. And at very least would be great squad player. He showed glimpses all season and has an excellent attitude and wants to play for West Ham and please the fans. Him and Antonio have such a good attitude and work hard makes fans appreciate them all the more

  2. I’d hold on to Valencia til the last minute as he could be only recognised striker for start of the season as for the other 3 yeah sell em to Birmingham lol

  3. I cannot believe that anyone would include Fletcher on a sale list. I have noted critiscism of him before, but the guy has not been given a chance, so how can anyone knock him?

    From the scant pitch time he’s had he has shown skill /ball control (better than Carrol and most deffo better than Valencia) and is definitely one to develop. He was ahead of Rashford at Man U and only through injury did he lose the opportuntiy that Rashford got and took.
    Being caught up in the Zaza Calleri era is not his fault and I do not understand why Bilic (if true) is uncertain of him? How can he tell from the training pitch? he needs proper game time and he will flourish.
    This has really sickened me and again if true, I am beginning to doubt Slaven’s ability to identify forwards/strikers, as to date his choices and mine are some way apart.

  4. All these players being sold and we have signed one free transfer. H ha ha good old west Ham way …

  5. Feghouli should not be sold he was linked with Galatasaray for £4m which he is worth more than that. He had in and off season but he is a good player and especially as squad player. Its hard enough to adapt to new country language and league then add Stadium move Dimi saga which caused unrest in squad and Skav’s pension for playing out of position.
    He was great in preseason and he has a fantastic attitude like Antonio. He wants to stay and play for West Ham and apologises to fans if he has an off game and promises to so better. He is a good person and good player. When he got a decent run of games towards end he was more consistent.
    Unless we get £15-£20m and not at in of August then big NO.
    Would rather sell Ayew to Marseille if we buy 2 good strikers bc Ayew is a poacher and is good with 2 up front or behind the striker which is Lanzini’s best position #10. So if got Chic and Giroud. And Marseille were still Woking to pay what we paid for him YES.
    Carroll and Sahko are set to go to. Sahko will be very hard to sell. Caroll would be good a off the bench player.

  6. At this rate letting this amount players go would be madness when we still yet to sign anyone. Does the Premier run a 5 aside league because thats about all our squad could cope with if these players are let go before replacements come in. Seems a strange way to run a football club, buy rejects and unknowns one season then dump them all before next season. What are our chairmen doing, counting the money moving to OS has saved them or or they confused with running a PL club and playing a football management game.

  7. Who has said anything about selling these players before replacements are signed…that is all in your head no nonsense…
    We cleared out what was loaned or out of contract…we can have a squad of 25 which will be filled…im sure there were calls for youth to be given a chance…
    Its the start of july with essentially two months until the window shuts…
    Why can some of you not understand what is so easy to understand…BARELY ANY BUSINESS HAS BEEN DONE IN THE WINDOW FOR ANY CLUBS..
    Some of you drive grown men potty…

    • Actually a lot of Clubs have done decent business. Huddersfield has hot 7 signings already spending £35m plus.
      And Valencia is sold. And Feghouli Clubs have agreed fee but he hasn’t agrees personal terms.
      We are one of only 4 clubs that hasn’t signed a player not on free.
      And I would love for youth to get a call up. But Slav has never even been to a PL2 game. And Burke and Cullen could both go to Bolton.
      Ox is gone. I hope Rice Quina and Toni get a shot but Slav and the Board have not been good about given youth a chance not counting 10mins at end of a game a real chance. Toni could be a great striker. But hopefully we don’t loan them out until after see them in preseason

      • JRS there isnt a single Hudderersfield signing i would want….Two played for them last season in the champo…two are signing from the champo….they might have signed many but they havnt signed much premier league quality…imho…
        Time to judge is when the tw closes…not in the first week of July…

  8. Snod-Yes certainly
    Feg-Hope Not
    Fletcher-Saw enough of him before we signed him-Sell
    No Nonsense-Give away to a spuds site.

  9. I know we need cash to buy new players, and I agree with 3 of these being sold if we get replacements, but I don’t think Fletcher has been given enough of a chance.
    If we sell him I think it would end up as a source of embarrassment for us.

    • Sorry sleep but fletched is simply not good enough

    • We should have cash we made £120m plus just for staying up and finishing 11th also the massive increase in ticket sales. We rent a stadium mainly paid for by taxes. And after 2015/2016 season we netted a profit more than any other premier league over £250m without counting Sky TV money.
      You would think we would get at least half of the £120m at £60m plus any profits from what we sell. Should end up btwn £80m- £100m.
      Everton is obviously putting UA to shame already. But so are Bournemouth and new boys Huddersfield are making great signings already broke record twice about to be third. With Mooy, Ince, Jonas GK loan, Williams free, Palmer and Mounie about to sign which we were linked with for £12m. And a Burnley defender and Izzy brown awt to sign permanently. Go Terriers Wagner is doing business.
      Something just seems off since free transfer we have done nothing and understand Slav was out for Surgery for a bit. But could be in takeover talks, they were mad to turn down £650m from Red Bull over a year ago. Won’t get a bid that high again Sunderland couldn’t even get £90m.
      I would love a takeovwe from RB, A German group or an investor like Moshri at Everton.

    • Sorry for long post. But I like Fletcher too scored against Man U but not sure if right for us and if I had to choice btwn him and Toni Martinez I would go Toni

  10. I think Fletcher has been given enough chances, if he played every minute of every game he would be lucky to hit 10 goals. Would keep feghouli though at the money offered I doubt we could get a better squad player.

  11. I will trust your impeccable judgement on Fletcher Fishy because i have been asking all season what people see in him im missing.I watched him 4 or 5 times for Barnsley & yeah he scored a couple of goals (yeah i know that is good 😁) but all in all i thought he was average to shyte 😉

  12. Btw that Caroline Wozniacki the tennis player on now is pretty tasty.I wouldn’t mind giving her a lob or two 😂

  13. Can you say that in this PC world we live in RL …but i concure Lol

    • Yeah right mate because women never make remarks about footballers asses or muscles do they 😁

  14. Like to see youngsters given more time i e Fletcher.

    Caroline Wozniacki looking very hot. Thankfully my hands are tied behind by back due to sudden lose of sight . It makes you blind !!⚒😂🤜🤛🤜🤛

    • 😂😂

      • Cheers mate,we had a boy.Dont know who mentioned a Cod Face but i dont think it was me 😂

        • You did up above 🙂 but read it wrong ! You know how it is with two glass eyes 🙂 🙂 🙂 .

  15. I’d get rid of the lot of them plus Carroll and Sakho – but that ain’t going to happen.
