According to a report from Claret and Hugh, West Ham boss David Moyes could sell Manuel Lanzini and Ryan Fredericks this summer.
The Hammers will be keen to bolster their squad this summer. But they will surely be looking to move some underperforming players on as well.

And Lanzini and Fredericks certainly fit into that category.
Tough period for two West Ham players
The 27-year-old Argentine has been in absolutely horrendous form this season. He has racked up just two assists in 19 Premier League outings for the Hammers since the start of the campaign (Who Scored).
Anything Lanzini has tried recently hasn’t worked. His confidence is shot and he is a shadow of his former self.
The 27-year-old Englishman, meanwhile, has been a real disappointment since joining West Ham on a free transfer in the summer of 2018.
He has made 38 appearances for the Hammers, racking up two goals and three assists in the process (Transfermarkt).
Fredericks has plenty of pace, but he has been scared to use it to good effect. His confidence is obviously low, and it could actually be argued that Jeremy Ngakia is now ahead of him in the pecking order.
Lanzini is under contract with West Ham until 2023. Fredericks’ contract, meanwhile, expires in the summer of 2022.
Considering the fact that they are both 27, the Hammers could probably still garner decent fees for the pair.
And it might just be in West Ham’s best interest to move them both on when the transfer window opens in the summer.
