West Ham enjoyed a stunning season last time out but now is the summer to build on that and prove it wasn’t a fluke, so David Moyes should be looking to move on certain players that aren’t consistent enough, like Andriy Yarmolenko, according to Barry Fry.
Yarmolenko has been the standout performer for Ukraine at the Euros as they progressed out of the group stages and with two goals in those matches, the Hammers winger has showcased what he can do when fit and motivated to play.
Is Yarmolenko good enough for West Ham?
At the London Stadium, Yarmolenko is far from the main man, whereas with his national side they lean on him to provide pieces of magic, like his goal against the Netherlands, but with minutes and fitness difficult to come by at West Ham, reports have linked him with a summer exit.
There is no doubting that the Ukraine captain has ability in abundance but with his £115,000 per week wage packet and inability to perform on a consistent basis could see Moyes move him on if possible this summer, according to Fry who spoke exclusively to Transfer Tavern:
“When he gets an opportunity in the Premier League he’s not consistent and he doesn’t perform. In fact, since he signed for West Ham he’s underperformed massively but, you can see the ability he has from his performances at the Euros.
“I think West Ham have got to look at a couple of players like Anderson and Yarmolenko and sell them if they want to bring in top-class players and put some money in the transfer budget to buy somebody better.”
If the Hammers can manage to get some fringe players off their wage bill then it could add a lot of money and ability to manoeuvre in the transfer market and improve their already solid squad.
