Le 10 Sport claims Niko Kovac wants to bring West Ham striker Sebastien Haller to Monaco this summer. And some Hammers fans have taken to Twitter in reaction to suggestions that David Moyes could sell the towering forward.
The 26-year-old joined the Hammers in the summer for a fee believed to be worth £45 million (BBC).
Haller has struggled to impress at the London Stadium, however. The Frenchman has scored just seven goals in 32 games for West Ham (Transfermarkt).
In fairness to him, however, he hasn’t been given enough service or support through the middle.
After struggling with injury since project restart, Haller has lost his starting place under David Moyes.
And with the Scot needing to sell before he can buy this summer (Claret and Hugh), it wouldn’t be a surprise to see West Ham cash in on the 26-year-old at the end of the season.
Niko Kovac was linked with the West Ham job before Moyes was appointed in December 2019 (Mirror). And he is clearly a big fan of Haller, having managed him during his time in charge at Eintracht Frankfurt.
The Frenchman could still come good. But at the same time, he is one of the few West Ham players who will command a decent fee this summer.
And some Hammers fans debated on Twitter whether selling Haller this summer would be a good idea…
No, don’t sell him. Whatever people say about recouping the money it’s not worth it, there’s not a better striker out there for that kind of money. If we keep him, he’s scoring 15+ goals next aeason

You say not a better striker, he has 7 in 33. He cant play in our system really, not his fault. If we can recoup our money absolutely. He has potential but hes also very lazy. Also I imagine hed prefer to return to France anyway.

If we could recoup our money then fine. If not we must persist.

Get back the money we paid for him and I’d have absolutely no problem with this 👋🏻

If we could get close to what we got for him and use that money along with ajeti to celtic combined to get Robinson – wigan morelos- rangers eze -qpr and maybe even change would accept this all day long but have to be getting at least close to 35 mil for him

Instead of selling him why not try and get his mate Jovic on loan? He’s been a total flop at Real, so I think they need each other. Get him on loan Sully!!! 🤣
