West Ham fans split over Antonio exit link

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.
