West Ham United will aim to sell striker Jordan Hugill during the January transfer window, according to a report which was published by Football Insider. 

The winter transfer window will indeed be a good time for the Hammers to sell the 27-year-old.

Hugill is currently on loan with Queens Park Rangers in the Championship and has been in good form this season as he has so far scored six goals from 11 league games.

Based on his current form, Rangers as well as many other Championship clubs will likely display interest in signing the player permanently in January.

Hugill joined West Ham during the January transfer window of 2018 in a surprise switch from Preston North End.

To many Hammers fans he was never really viewed as Premier League material and went on to make three top-flight appearances for the East Londoners, failing to score a goal.

He was subsequently deemed surplus to requirements at the London Stadium after Manuel Pellegrini was appointed as the West Ham manager during the summer of 2018.

Hugill remains contracted to the London Stadium until the summer of 2022.

West Ham hence will not need to entertain cut-price offers for his signature. If they fail to get a good offer in January, they could let him remain at QPR until the end of the season and then sell him next summer.

There is very little chance of Hugill ever donning the jersey of West Ham again barring an injury crisis. Sebastien Haller has also firmly established himself as the Hammers first-choice number nine.
