West Ham transfer news: Stalwart likely to leave Hammers and join Premier League rivals Wolves this summer.
With the Scot and the German seemingly at loggerheads, the Hammers could start the new season with no new signings if we’re not careful.
It seems like there could be a few more high-profile exits as well. Aaron Cresswell is someone who has been linked with a move away from the London Stadium.
And it’s now being claimed that a move away from East London is very likely to happen for the 33-year-old…
West Ham transfer news: Stalwart likely to leave Hammers and join Premier League rivals
Jacob Steinberg reckons that Cresswell will probably end up joining Wolves before the transfer window slams shut.
David Moyes needs to be really careful here. He lost Mark Noble last summer, Declan Rice a few weeks ago, and could now lose Cresswell, as well as the likes of Michail Antonio and Gianluca Scamacca.
That’s an awful lot of experience to allow out of the door without bringing any new faces in.
In recent times, West Ham have kept hold of players for far too long through either misguided loyalty, or sentimentality.
That all has to change if we are to make progress to the next level.
In fairness, I think selling Cresswell will be the correct call this summer. However, if Moyes is to let him leave, he absolutely has to sign a couple of experienced leaders – something that we’re really lacking right now, and that’s without potentially our longest serving current player!
This one will be worth keeping a close eye on over the next week or so, as the West Ham transfer news really begins to kick up a notch.
