West Ham fans are split over the future of Michail Antonio, after the powerful winger was listed as one of three first team players that could be sold this summer.
The Hammers completed the signing of Andriy Yarmolenko on Wednesday, and reports in Italy suggest a deal for Felipe Anderson is all but done.
Manuel Pellegrini has done what plenty of managers have failed to do by convincing the owners at the London Stadium to get their wallet out, but it could be bad news for some first team players.
According to Sky Sports, the Hammers will listen to offers for Antonio, Cheikhou Kouyate and Pedro Obiang.
Antonio, who earns £70,000-a-week according to The Daily Mail, was a fan favourite during the farewell season at the Boleyn Ground, and has scored 20 Premier League goals in 76 appearances for the Hammers.
However, the 28 year-old was in and out of the team with injuries last season, and it appears he could be on his way out as Yarmolenko and Anderson come for his place in the pecking order.
Fans are split on the report though, with some agreeing it’s time for Antonio to move on while others hate to see the back of a player who has given so much for the club.
Either way, you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
Yes but only if we signed both Anderson and Yarmolenko.

No I’d keep to see if turns into the beast he was maybe the boss can sort him out ?

Definitely. Been ineffective for a good while now and his injury record is poor. If we can cover the cost of Yarmolenko with his sale then it’s great business.

Yes easily no where near the player he was in his first season

I wouldn’t sell him for anything

I’d keep him and move snodgrass on for depth. But if we get a replacement then I’d be open

I like him as a player/person… but if we aren’t getting any offers from him, then I’ll take what I can get, I really do wish he didn’t get Injured, could of been a outstanding player

He’s not versatile…he’s a raw, pact winger, that’s it…end of! He can not fulfil any other role in PL! I like him, but his technical ability is light years behind the likes of Wilshere and our other prospective signings! End product lacking…bit like Arthur ?

No he’s got a lot to offer and we are still only seeing the tip of the iceberg.

Yes definitely anything above £15m I’d take, cash in while we can ??
