Antonio has already been linked with a move to Wolves this summer, with West Ham said to be demanding £6 million for him.

It seems as though he could be set to move a little further afield though…

Michail Antonio in talks to leave West Ham for another club this summer

The Jamaica international could be set to leave the Hammers to join Steven Gerrard’s Al-Ettifaq out in Saudi Arabia this summer.

That’s according to FM journalist Santi Aouna anyway:

I would have thought that Moyes will be doing everything in his power to keep the 33-year-old – he’s the perfect striker for his system.

However, he has just one year remaining on his current deal at the London Stadium, so selling him this summer may well be the prudent play.

Michail Antonio has been a superb servant for West Ham over the past eight years, and he actually seems to have rediscovered his best form once again this season.

However, it wouldn’t surprise me one little bit if he left to move out to Saudi Arabia this summer. If that does happen, it will be vital for Moyes to bring in an adequate replacement for the former Nottingham Forest attacker.
