West Ham could offload nine players this summer

West Ham could offload nine players this summer

West Ham United have largely enjoyed their summer this year as they have been rather successful in the transfer market recruiting new bodies.

Manuel Pellegrini is keen on rebuilding the squad he inherited from David Moyes and is looking to turn the London Stadium outfit into a squad capable of being competitive in the Premier League.

He has so far made five solid additions and is believed to be on the verge of completing a deal for Felipe Anderson, however, a report is suggesting he could still have a whole lot of business to conduct before the transfer window shuts next month.

According to The Times, Pellegrini is thought to be prepared to offload nine members of his squad as he looks to reduce it and also make finances available for other acquisitions, with a centre-back thought to be on his list.

The report states that Sam Byram, Jordan Hugill, Cheikhou Kouyate, Pedro Obiang, Angelo Ogbonna, Michail Antonio, Edimilson Fernandes, Andy Carroll and Adrian could all be available this summer, whilst there is uncertainty surrounding Marko Arnautovic’s future as well.

The Verdict:

West Ham will feel confident that they can offload a number of the names mentioned this summer as plenty of them have attracted interest from other clubs during the course of the summer.

Carroll could be one that may be more difficult to see depart as he has recently just suffered another injury blow and required surgery, making him unavailable for another three months.

Byram and Hugill have both been linked with moves to the Championship, with Leeds United being credited with some interest, whilst both Arnautovic and Antonio have been on the radar of Premier League clubs over the summer.
