According to a report from Claret and Hugh, West Ham boss David Moyes could sell up to eight first-team players this summer.

Because of the ongoing global health crisis, and the inevitable financial ramifications, the Hammers will undoubtedly have to be thrifty in the transfer market this summer.

West Ham desperately need to bring some new faces to the London Stadium at the end of the season.

But in order to do that, Moyes will surely have to move some players on first. And there are plenty of names who could be up for the chop.

Potential fire-sale?

Claret and Hugh has named the eight players who the Hammers will consider bids for this summer.

Felipe Anderson, Fabian Balbuena, Ablian Ajeti, Manuel Lanzini, Arthur Masuaku, Jack Wilshere, Ryan Fredericks and Andriy Yarmolenko could all be sold according to the West Ham insiders.

It could actually be argued that all of those players haven’t lived up to their hype since joining the Hammers.


Manuel Lanzini impressed during his early years in east London. But his form has fallen off the side of a cliff recently.

The eight players mentioned cost a combined £90 million, and that includes two free transfers.

If West Ham can garner decent fees for any of them, it might just be in their best interest to sell this summer.

And then perhaps David Moyes can bring in younger, hungrier and more athletic players who can help him fulfil the vision and playing identity that he wants to implement at the London Stadium over the next few years.
