David Moyes should be a busy man in the transfer market this summer.
The West Ham fans are craving some new signings.
And the Hammers boss will be well aware of the fact that he needs to bolster his ranks at the London Stadium considerably.
In order for West Ham to adequately strengthen their ranks, Moyes will probably need to shift on some of the deadwood first in order to inflate his current budget.
Or perhaps there is another way.
Moyes prides himself on getting the very best out of the players he coaches. Just look at how much he improved the likes of Marko Arnautovic, Michail Antonio and Pablo Fornals.
Will David Moyes give West Ham trio one final chance?
Felipe Anderson, Andriy Yarmolenko and Ryan Fredericks all have qualities that could prove to be really useful for the Hammers.
The problem is that all three of them have been in woeful form over the past year.
The Brazilian, the Ukrainian and the Englishman are all out of contract in the summer of 2022. If West Ham sell them this summer, we won’t get much in the way of transfer fees.
So perhaps Moyes should give them all one final chance to impress. That wouldn’t come without risk, however. If they all fail to produce the goods during this upcoming season, the Hammers would then lose them all on free transfers in 12 months time.
We think it might just be worth that risk. Anderson clearly has exceptional talent. He proved it during his first 18 months in East London.
The South American just needs to work harder.
Meanwhile, Andriy Yarmolenko has looked like a different player with Ukraine at the Euros this summer. The 31-year-old is a mercurial, enigmatic player. Perhaps his recent performances for his country will give him the confidence he needs to return to West Ham and rediscover his best form once again.
Anad finally, Ryan Fredericks. The 28-year-old possesses blistering pace and whilst he might not be the best defender, he did impress at times in a more advanced role last season. Aston Villa away is a prime example.
He wouldn’t be a bad player to keep, especially considering how close he is to Declan Rice!
If Moyes does keep all three players, he will be well covered in all positions apart from centre-forward, central midfield and centre-back. That means that his focus will solely be aimed at strengthening those particular departments.
Whether Moysie has the same viewpoint as us remains to be seen, however.
