David Moyes takes over a West Ham side who are bang in trouble.

The Hammers are currently sitting in 17th spot in the Premier League table, just one point clear of the drop zone.

Manuel Pellegrini oversaw a dreadful run of just two wins in 13 league games, and he paid the price by losing his job on Saturday.

It’s easy to blame the Chilean, and criticism of him is fair, but in truth, a large number of West Ham players quite simply haven’t been fit to wear the shirt this season.

And with that in mind, here are six players Moyes should be looking to sell either in January or next summer in an attempt to rebuild a broken culture at the London Stadium…

The Spanish goalkeeper arrived in east London on a free transfer in the summer, and he has been nothing short of an absolute disaster.

The 33-year-old has to go down as one of the worst signings in the Premier League era. And the sooner that West Ham move him on, the better.

The Democratic Republic of Congo international has been inconsistent if nothing else during his three-and-a-half years at West Ham.

The 26-year-old lacks any kind of discipline and professionalism and typifies everything that is wring with the Hammers.

Another candidate for the worst signing of the Premier League era, the Colombian has been woeful for West Ham.

 

Sanchez is totally clueless, lacks any kind of quality, and is more of a hindrance than a help.

He is out of contract in the summer, but West Ham need to try and get him out of the club sooner than that.

Manuel Lanzini

This will be a contentious one for Hammers fans to read. The Argentine was a real fan favourite in east London during the first three years at the club.

He has really fallen off the boil over the past 18 months, however. Worryingly, Lanzini seems to be disinterested and his work really has left a lot to be desired. West Ham should consider selling him while he holds high value in the market.

The injury prone midfielder has been a disaster since joining the Hammers on a free transfer in the summer of 2018.

If the east London outfit can get any kind of fee for him in January, they would be silly to turn it down.

Another flop, the Swiss hitman is clearly not cut out for the intense nature of the Premier League.

It could be argued that he hasn’t been given a fair enough crack at the whip, but the early signs are not good.

If the Hammers can recoup even half the fee they paid for him in the summer, they shouldn’t hesitate to sell.
