Report names seven West Ham players Moyes would sell this summer

West Ham United need to sell players before they can bolster the first-team squad this summer and are willing to listen to offers for seven of the current contingent, according to the Daily Mail.

There has been plenty of speculation over possible new Hammers recruits in recent weeks, but Tomas Soucek’s permanent move to the London Stadium remains the only major piece of transfer business so far. 

The latest report suggests West Ham have rejected an offer from Norwich City for fringe forward Jordan Hugill, but the clubs remain engaged in talks over a possible deal for the striker to move to Carrow Road. 

It also suggests that David Moyes is willing to listen to offers for Fabian Balbuena, Arthur Masuaku, Jack Wilshere, Ryan Fredericks, Manuel Lanzini and Felipe Anderson. 

West Ham need to freshen up the first-team squad after a disappointing 2019-20 campaign where the club flirted with relegation and needed a late-season upturn in form to avoid the drop. 

Some of the names mentioned as potential expendable members of the squad make sense; some don’t. 

West Ham are short of options at right-back after Pablo Zabaleta’s exit and as such, selling Fredericks would be an interesting decision. 

Lanzini is a fans’ favourite but has been inconsistent – nursing the Argentine back to form and fitness could well be a big boost for the Hammers. 

Meanwhile, Masuaku has been a useful squad member when deployed in an advanced role in the West Ham side and Anderson has undoubted talent.

With a few weeks before the 2020-21 season starts, it appears there will be plenty of upheaval at the London Stadium before the Hammers start the new campaign against Newcastle on September 12.
