Claret and Hugh claimed recently that West Ham boss David Moyes could sell Andriy Yarmolenko in the summer, and some Hammers fans have taken to Twitter in reaction to the speculation.

The 30-year-old is currently in his second season with West Ham. But he has struggled once again this term, enduring another injury-hit campaign.
The 86-capped Ukraine international joined the Hammers from Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2018 for a fee believed to be worth around £18 million (Football Insider).
Yarmolenko has racked up just five goals and one assist in 24 Premier League games for the east London outfit. He also has recorded a shooting accuracy of just 41%. (premierleague.com).
The 30-year-old’s last appearance for West Ham came on December 14th against Southampton. He has only played 25 games for the Hammers since moving to the London Stadium in the summer of 2018.
The Ukrainian is clearly very injury prone, and his form over the past 18 months warrants being sold.
Yarmolenko earns £115,000 per week at the London Stadium as well (Spotrac). That is a serious amount of money for someone who has spectacularly underperformed over the past 20 months.
And some West Ham fans reacted on Twitter to the report claiming that the 30-year-old could be moved on by Moyes this summer…
Pls get rid of Yarmolenko, hopefully we should get 8-10m for him https://t.co/IDk8diIGRO

yarmolenko has been awful for us, get rid asap

No, Anderson should stay unless a big bid comes in (£30+m), he’s been a scapegoat this season & he like Haller needs better support & use in a system!
I’d move Lanzini & Yarm before I even think about selling him…

Lanzini and Yarmolenko should be the major movers. I’d throw in Masuaku. Getting Sanchez, Wilshere, Reid and Zaba off the books would also free up a lot of wages.

Selling anderson is the biggest mistake we would make , Lanzini, wilshere and Yarmo out , and replace Anderson wil be much better in a properly scriptured team where he can just play like he wants too
— Martyn Hobbs (@MartynHobbs12) April 8, 2020
Yarmo yes. Felipe no & take a loss on both hoping Grady coming back helps push Felipe.
Then we really don’t need wingers imo a CF that can play across be good but wing is most stacked position IMO.

West Ham should be looking at keeping Felipe Anderson as everyone knows on his day he is our most talented player – there are two midfielders West Ham need to be looking to off,lad to acquire transfer funds and they are Yarmolenko and Lanzini.

Yarmolenko yes but not anderson
