Big personnel changes could come at West Ham this month as club make transfer decision – report

The West Ham fans in the Transfer Tavern have been impressed with the leadership of David Moyes this season. The Scotsman has really turned things around at the London Stadium, and whilst the 2017/18 season looked set to be a disaster for the Hammers, the second-half of the campaign could become quite progressive now.

Clearly, then, the changes that David Moyes has made at the club have worked, and according to Kaveh Solhekol of Sky Sports, even more changes could be coming.

Solhekol reports that West Ham are ready to listen to offers for a number of players, with big changes in the attack – in particular – potentially forthcoming. The quartet of Andy Carroll, Javier Hernandez, Andre Ayew and Diafra Sakho could all leave the London Stadium this month, with the club seemingly ready to rebuild the attack. Carroll, it is said, could be sold for £20 million, though the asking prices of their other players have not been disclosed. 

None of West Ham’s strikers have really covered themselves in glory this year, with David Moyes’ men struggling for goals throughout the campaign. Though he was brought in with big expectations, Javier Hernandez has struggled to adapt, whilst Andre Ayew and Diafra Sakho’s spells have been disappointing at best.

Andy Carroll remains a useful and potent option for the Hammers, but his injury issues have really been problematic for his club, and so they have seemingly had enough of that.

Any departures would, of course, demand a replacement – but if West Ham are able to get decent returns for each sale, they could look to reinvest more wisely.

Landlord’s Verdict

They’re a talented bunch, but none of West Ham’s attackers have had much luck at the club. In truth, it’s been an area of real concern for them over the last few years, and it’s an issue that needs resolving.

Selling them, based on current form, wouldn’t be a bad idea, but they must be replaced. Their season could quickly go downhill without enough options in the attack.
