In an exclusive interview with Football FanCast, Rob Lee claims that West Ham must look to move on some of their well-paid deadwood this summer.
West Ham have several players who have failed to impress under David Moyes, including Andriy Yarmolenko, Manuel Lanzini and Felipe Anderson, with the latter failing to impress during his loan spell at FC Porto this season, making just nine appearances.
Anderson was sent out on loan to the Portuguese giants last October, however, they will not be making the deal a permanent one and the winger is not set to be in Moyes’ plans for next season.
Speaking on how Moyes will already be planning to move on some players, including the aforementioned trio, in the summer and why some players may decide themselves that it’s time to leave, Lee exclusively told FFC:
“I’m sure David Moyes will be looking to move some players on and to try and raise some money.
“‘I’m sure some of the squad players will want to leave because they want to play football and then the club will try to offload them to raise funds for some sort of transfer budget to buy Jesse Lingard.”
After Yarmolenko scored two against Everton just a few games into his West Ham career, Tony Cascarino likened the £115,000 per week winger to former Tottenham Hotspur and Real Madrid superstar, Gareth Bale. Since then, though, the Ukraine international has struggled to make a consistent impact in claret and blue, mostly due to a horrendous injury record.
