West Ham United willing to sell Vladimir Coufal in January

West Ham United willing to sell Vladimir Coufal in January - Follow up

West Ham United are reportedly willing to sell Vladimir Coufal during the upcoming January transfer window according to Sky Sports journalist Dharmesh Sheth

The Lowdown: Coufal linked with West Ham exit

So far this season, Coufal has started 15 of the 17 games he’s played in across all competitions, with only one Premier League start under his belt since the start of October.

Earlier this month, it was claimed that the full-back had been in talks over a potential move to Bayer Leverkusen, who he could imagine playing for.

With that in mind, it seems as though an exit from the London Stadium could be just around the corner for Coufal.

The Latest: West Ham willing to sell Coufal in January

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, Sheth was asked about the possibility of seeing the defender wave goodbye to West Ham once the winter transfer window opens for business.

He said: “That is definitely one to look out for.


“There’s somebody I’ve been speaking to about Coufal and the feeling I’m getting is that the January transfer window could be one where West Ham will say ‘thank you for your service, but we’re going to move in a different direction and we’re going to allow you to go’.”

The Verdict: A risk for West Ham

Across the nine league games he’s played in this season, Coufal has still managed to rack up a combined total of 29 tackles and interceptions, which is more than the likes of Aaron Cresswell (27) and Kurt Zouma (17), who have played more minutes than him in the league.

This highlights what the Czech Republic international is able to offer the team when called upon.

Even though the 30-year-old has seemingly lost his place in the starting XI for West Ham’s league games, we feel that letting him go in January could be a risk, especially if they end up needing him beyond that should any of their other defensive options pick up an injury.

Although, with his contract set to expire at the end of the season, letting him leave in January could be the only time for the club to cash in on him rather than risk seeing him leave as a free agent in the summer.
