Jack Wilshere, Ryan Fredericks and Andriy Yarmolenko are three players who have been struggling to get into the West Ham squad as of late, and it looks like they possibly will be surplus to requirements according to reports.
Football.London are reporting that the trio could be fighting for their futures at the club in the coming months. This is due to the fact that between them the players have only managed 41 games this season, including substitute appearances, whilst David Moyes is also looking to reduce the age of his squad, per The Guardian.
Would you sell all three players?
This highlights how unreliable the three unfortunately are and as the club sit in a relegation battle, players who are injury prone are reducing Moyes’ squad depth and just adding to the struggles at the club.
It seems best for the club if they were to let the trio go, Wilshere is reportedly on £100,000 a week and if the East london side want to rebuild in the summer they need all the money possible to do so.
It also looks like the Irons have already planned for their departures, as young Jeremy Ngakia is now occupying Fredericks position at right-back, whilst central midfielder Tomas Soucek, who is currently on loan, looks like the probable replacement for Wilshere as it was reported that when completing the loan, the club added the option of a permanent deal in the clause, via BBC Sport.
Yarmolenko’s position on the wing has recently been strengthened in the January transfer window, as the club signed highly rated winger Jarrod Bowen from Hull, and the Englishman has managed one goal in four games in the Premier League, per Transfermarkt, and has impressed fans of the club.
The three players currently in the starting eleven are stronger than the trio whose future is in doubt and the club can feel like they will not need to spend a lot at all to replace the squad depth in that position.
