Our View: West Ham must sell Anderson and Lanzini in order to sign rapid £40m PL lethal weapon

West Ham boss David Moyes will have to sell before he can buy this summer. And the Scot should start the process by getting rid of underperforming duo Felipe Anderson and Manuel Lanzini in order to bring in sensational Watford ace Ismaila Sarr.

The Sun claims that the 22-year-old speed demon could be available for £40 million this summer.

And if the Hammers could sell Anderson and Lanzini for £40 million combined, and bring in Sarr, it would be terrific business for the east London outfit.

Sarr was a constant menace for defenders up and down England this season. And at 22, he will surely only get better.


The former Rennes ace racked up five goals and six assists in 28 Premier League games for Watford this term (Transfermarkt).

In those outings, the pacy winger attempted 44 shots, created nine big chances and whipped in 99 crosses ( He also averaged 1.7 dribbles and 0.9 key passes per game during those appearances (Who Scored).

The Watford attacker could easily go on to become a £100 million player if he continues his development. So £40 million might just represent good value for West Ham.

And David Moyes must do everything in his power to bring him to the London Stadium this summer.

The prospect of Sarr lining up alongside Jarrod Bowen and Grady Diangana next season will surely be a tantalising one for Hammers fans.

Anderson and Lanzini must be moved on first, however, if West Ham are to have any chance whatsoever of bring the Senegalese ace to east London.
