West Ham are looking to find their feet under Manuel Pellegrini and the Chilean boss is likely to rejuvenate his side further in the January transfer window.

The Hammers spent in excess of £100m over the course of the summer to capture the likes of Issa Diop, Andriy Yarmolenko and Felipe Anderson but have so far struggled to find consistency in the Premier League.

While optimism has risen following a two-match unbeaten streak in recent weeks, there are still problems for Pellegrini to solve and his squad could undergo further changes in the New Year – where there could be a major departure.

Reports suggest that West Ham are unhappy with the fitness levels of Michail Antonio and will look to sell the 28-year-old in January, targeting a fee of £20m for the former Nottingham Forest man who has declined in form in recent seasons.

Hitting nine goals in the 2016-17 Premier League campaign, Antonio scored just three times in 31 appearances last season has he struggled with injury issues and is yet to find the net or register an assist in five matches this term.

With the summer signings of Anderson and Yarmolenko, Antonio is expendable and West Ham are right to consider a sale.
