West Ham United might be considering the sale of up to seven first-team players during the upcoming January transfer window, relays the Hammer.News. According to Claret and Hugh, a website closely associated with West Ham co-chairman David Sullivan, it’s suggested that West Ham manager David Moyes could be in a position where player sales become a necessity for further transfers.
The Hammers have enjoyed a strong start to the 2023/24 season, with all four of Moyes’s summer signings making impressive contributions to the team’s campaign. Nevertheless, there is work yet to be done, and the club needs to offload players that are deemed surplus to requirements.
Several players at the London Stadium are reportedly available for transfer. Claret and Hugh’s report identifies Pablo Fornals, Danny Ings, Maxwel Cornet, Thilo Kehrer, Aaron Cresswell, and Ben Johnson as potential candidates to be moved during the winter transfer window. In addition to these six, the report suggests that there could be a significant offer from Saudi Arabia for Nayef Aguerd.
It’s improbable that West Ham will part ways with all seven players in January. However, fans might see the departures of Fornals, Cornet, and Ings as potential moves to raise funds for Moyes to make additions to the squad in the transfer market. The upcoming January window could bring significant changes to the West Ham United roster as they seek to fine-tune their squad for the remainder of the season.
