A shock report has claimed that Maxwel Cornet could leave West Ham on loan in January, but it makes absolutely no sense.

According to a report from German publication BILD, Wolfsburg are keen to bring Cornet to Germany from East London in January.

It is claimed that ‘things are not going well’ for Cornet at the London Stadium, and that if ‘his sporting situation under David Moyes remains as unsatisfactory as it is at the moment’, he could be set for a loan exit.

The Ivory Coast International moved to the London Stadium from Burnley in the summer transfer window for around £17.5 million (Sky Sports).

The Ivory Coast international has struggled to make much of an impact so far, but he has shown us glimpses of what he’s capable of.

And in fairness to him, he has bagged five assists in nine games for West Ham so far (Transfermarkt).

Cornet was unlucky to suffer an injury against Wolves a couple of weeks ago, just after he had been given his first Premier League start by David Moyes.

He is believed to be close to returning to action though.

I believe that the reports linking the 26-year-old with a January exit from the Hammers have absolutely no substance behind them…

Maxwel Cornet could leave West Ham claims

German website BILD reckon that Wolfsburg are eyeing up a loan move for the 26-year-old Hammers winger in January.

It is suggested that he is struggling at West Ham and is not happy with his lack of game time under Moyes.

Come on now, this is just totally ridiculous. Cornet has only been at West Ham for two months!

He has shown us what he is capable of with moments of brilliance as well.

His assist for Said Benrahma away at Viborg was sensational and the same can be said for the way in which he set up Ginaluca Scamacca to score against the Danes.

Moyes always eases new signings into action slowly.

There is absolutely no way that the Scot will be prepared to give up on the ex-Burnley ace so quickly.

Besides, West Ham desperately need Maxwel Cornet’s versatility in the attacking wide left and right positions.

I think this report makes zero sense, and I would be absolutely shocked if he is allowed to leave the London Stadium on loan in January.
