West Ham should look to sell Michail Antonio during the January transfer window, according to ExWHUEmployee.
The insider claims that both Everton and Wolves are interested in the 32-year-old, but the fact that the two clubs are also fighting relegation means it would be a risk offloading the forward to either team:
“I think personally, we should maybe consider letting him go based upon what I saw on Saturday, and based upon what I’ve heard about his attitude recently, and what I think he’s demonstrated recently, and he’s been off-form this season. However, it’s a very, very bold move, selling him to either Everton or Wolves, who are obviously potential relegation contestants with us.”
As Ex points out, Antonio’s form has been pretty woeful this season and, to compound matters, it appears his attitude off the pitch hasn’t been great.
With that being the case, an exit this month seems like the right move for all parties. There were some surprising reports at the weekend that Chelsea had even made an enquiry about loaning the striker but it is believed the Hammers would prefer a permanent sale.
Selling him to either Everton or Wolves doesn’t come without risk, though. If he does rediscover his best levels at one of those two teams and guides them to safety, West Ham may live to regret it.
