According to a report from Claret and Hugh, West Ham could be actively looking to sell Carlos Sanchez in January.

The 33-year-old joined the Hammers from Fiorentina in the summer of 2018, for a fee believed to be worth £4 million, according to the Sun.

He has been a total flop at the London Stadium, however.

The Colombian, who earns £50,000 per week according to Spotrac, has made just 13 appearances for West Ham, and has failed to notch a single goal or an assist.

That is almost forgivable, however. Sanchez is a defensive midfielder by trade, but he has never made the Hammers look more solid when he’s played. In fact, he looks like a catastrophe waiting to happen every time he’s in possession.


Sanchez’s current contract with West Ham expires in the summer of 2020. According to Claret and Hugh, however, the east London outfit are trying to move him on in January for a nominal fee.

The problem for the Hammers will be that there will surely be not many clubs who are willing to pay a fee for the South American. Especially when he will be available on a free transfer in the summer.

West Ham fans would surely be delighted to see the back of the midfielder.

They might just have to wait a little bit longer before Sanchez is eventually moved on, however.
