ExWHUemployee has claimed that West Ham are looking to sell Roberto and Carlos Sanchez this month.
I think we will look to move them on but can’t imagine there will be many takers https://t.co/9NxzB5mfpq

The Hammers will surely be keen to bolster their squad this month, but getting rid of some players will be just as important.
Sanchez, 33, joined the Hammers from Fiorentina in the summer of 2018 for around £3.9 million, according to Viola Nation.
The Colombian has proven to be nothing short of a total flop, however. He has played just 16 games for West Ham, and has failed to make any kind of impact whatsoever.
Roberto, meanwhile, has been just as bad.
He joined the Hammers on a free transfer in the summer, but has failed miserably to establish himself.
The Spaniard filled in for Lukasz Fabianski when the Pole suffered a serious injury at the end of September. And his performances would have been comical if they hadn’t cost West Ham so many points.
Moving the two players on is absolutely the right decision from the Hammers.
The problem they will have is finding a club who are actually willing to pay anything for the two players.
Sanchez’s contract expires in the summer, whilst Roberto has a year longer to run on his current deal.
So if West Ham can get anything at all for either player, they would have done very well indeed.
