Football.London‘s West Ham correspondent Sam Inkersole has tipped winger Andriy Yarmolenko to be sold if a suitable bid comes in for the 30-year-old when the transfer window opens.
The reporter feels the arrival of Jarrod Bowen in January means the Hammers now have too many players who can play in the same position as the Ukrainian international:
“He didn’t come cheap at £17.5million from Borussia Dortmund and is among the higher earners at the club as well as the Hammers will be looking to reduce their wage bill.”
“He could be one of the frontrunners to be sold this summer, with the Hammers also well stacked in the position for the future as well having signed Jarrod Bowen in January.”
West Ham are said to be open to selling any of their players for the right price due to the financial impact of the global health crisis.
However, there are some they are more willing to offload than others and Yarmolenko is very much one of those they wouldn’t mind getting off their books.
The likes of Bowen, Michail Antonio and Robert Snodgrass can all play on the right flank in the Ukrainian’s favoured position. Combined with the fact that the winger has had long spells out with injury over his two seasons at the London Stadium, it seems they are willing to cut their losses.
