David Moyes is hoping to sell West Ham United first-team duo in January for a combined fee of around £5 million.
That’s according to club insiders Claret and Hugh.
Following the recent investment from Daniel Kretinsky, the Hammers should be well positioned to make an assault on the transfer market in January.
Moyes needs to sign a striker, a centre-back, a left-back and perhaps another attacking midfielder with Said Benrahma set to depart for up to six weeks in the new year for the Africa Cup of nations.
West Ham may not be able to sign four players in January, but there’s a good chance that we could get two or three in.
It seems as though Moyes may have to move some players on, however, before he brings any in to the London Stadium.
David Moyes to sell first-team duo?
The Scot is trying to clear some of the deadwood out of the London Stadium according to C&H.
Andriy Yarmolenko and Arthur Masuaku are set for the chop.
And Moyes is hoping to bring in around £5 million for the pair.
More importantly though, West Ham would be freeing up some serious wages, especially by getting Yarmo’s £115k-a-week salary off the books.
West Ham boss David Moyes has a lot of work to do during the January transfer window.
If West Ham are to make a real push for the top four in the new year, we need a strong squad, it’s as simple as that.
That doesn’t mean that Moyes shouldn’t move on players who are not contributing though.
Yarmolenko and Masuaku certainly fit into that category.
They have both had their moments in a West Ham shirt but neither have produced the goods on a consistent enough basis.
And if we manage to get £5 million for the pair, it wouldn’t be bad business, especially considering the fact that Yarmolenko is out of contract in the summer.
