Former England international Darren Bent believes that West Ham should consider selling forward Andriy Yarmolenko in the January transfer window.
Would you sell Andriy Yarmolenko?
The Ukranian arrived in east London from Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2018, but this season in particular he has struggled to make much of an impact.
Indeed despite a decent start to the campaign, Yarmolenko has failed to score a single goal in any of his last nine Premier League appearances (Transfermarkt).
And because of his poor form, Bent believes that he is a player that the Hammers could consider letting go next month as they fight to remain in the top flight under new manager David Moyes.
When speaking about Yarmolenko, Bent told Football Insider: “He has got a lot of ability, but he is too inconsistent.
“There’s too much inconsistency with him, it’s either 9/10 or a 3/10 and considering where West Ham are at the minute, they need a bunch of players who are 6/10,8/10 every single week.
“For me, it makes sense, if they can get good money for him, then I’m all for it.”
Bent is right here. In a relegation scrap Moyes will need players who give everything for the shirt and who are consistent in their performances.
In his time at the club, Yarmolenko simply hasn’t been consistent enough, as highlighted by the fact that he has scored just five times in 25 appearances (Transfermarkt).
He does have quality and with his contract not set to expire until 2022, the Hammers could command a decent transfer fee for him which could then be used to bring in players Moyes will want in his squad.
