According to a report from Claret and Hugh, West Ham will try to sell Albian Ajeti in January, and bring in a more established striker to provide stiffer competition for Sebastien Haller.

The 22-year-old joined the Hammers from Basel in the summer for around £8 million, according to BBC Sport.

Ajeti, who earns £50,000 per week according to Sky Sports, has failed to make any kind of impact whatsoever at West Ham, however.

Most of the time he has either been used as a late substitute or left out of the squad entirely.

It is clear to see that the 10-capped Switzerland international is not good enough for the Premier League.

 

And Claret and Hugh claims that Ajeti could be sold in January. They suggest that Brentford actually were close to signing the striker in the summer for just £4.2 million, before West Ham came in with a better offer.

Quite who will buy the Swiss flop, however, remains a mystery.

If he is moved on, it will surely be for a lot less than the £8 million the Hammers paid for his services four months ago.
