Two West Ham youngsters could save David Moyes millions in the transfer market if Andriy Yarmolenko ends up leaving in either January or the summer.
After an incredibly underwhelming three year spell with West Ham following his £17 million move from Borussia Dortmund in 2018 (The Sun), it would be no surprise to see Moyes move the 31-year-old Hammers attacker on.
Allowing Yarmolenko to leave would obviously leave us rather light in the wide attacking department, however.
So Moyes may well have to splash the cash on a replacement for the Ukraine international either in January or the summer.
Or will he?
David Moyes can replace Andriy Yarmolenko without spending a penny
The Hammers have some incredibly exciting young players currently coming through the academy.
Two of those in particular are Dan Chesters and Armstrong Okoflex.
Both players are 19 and are undoubted stars of there future, if they continue to work hard and apply themselves of course.
David Moyes allowing Andriy Yarmolenko to leave is an absolute no-brainer, with the talented teenage duo coming through the ranks.
Chesters is very highly rated at West Ham.
The young attacking midfielder certainly has something special about him.
He can play on either wing or in the number 10 position and he has bagged one goal and four assists in 10 games for the under-23s so far this season (Transfermarkt).
Meanwhile, Okoflex has been absolutely on fire this season.
The Dublin born ace has nine goals in 11 games to his name for the under-23s so far and didn’t look out of place when playing for the senior team during pre-season.
Okoflex can play on either wing and seems to have more about him already than Yarmo does.
Both Chesters and Okoflex are clearly not yet finished articles. They have the talent and skillset needed to reach the very top though.
And Moyes should promote both of them when Yarmolenko is moved on.

Doing so would save the Scot millions in the market and enable him to use his funds purely on a striker and a new left-back.
