Michail Antonio is being linked with a move from West Ham United to the MLS this summer.
Hammers forward Antonio, 33, has been heavily linked with an exit from the London Stadium all summer long, but a recent report claimed that he’s now expected to say at the club.
However, it seems as though there is more interest in Antonio coming from the other side of the world…
Michail Antonio could be MLS bound as West Ham striker searches for new opportunities
The former Nottingham Forest man is drawing attention from America according to The Mirror’s Darren Lewis.
Antonio earns £100k-a-week at West Ham. That makes him the fifth highest earner at the London Stadium, behind only Lucas Paqueta, Danny Ings, Alphonse Areola and Kurt Zouma.
So getting those wages off the books this summer would be a big boost for Moyes as he looks to bring in numerous new faces.
Michail Antonio has been a fine servant for West Ham over the past eight years.
However, old Father Time waits for no man, and the 33-year-old definitely doesn’t possess the explosive pace and power that he once did.
The Hammers absolutely cannot head into the new season with the Jamaica international as our number one striker.
Moyes needs to find the next Michail Antonio, because he is obviously the perfect forward in the Scot’s eyes.
I feel like a move to the MLS would be ideal for Antonio at this stage of his career. I would prefer Moyes to bring in a replacement before he’s moved on though.
