West Ham are considering selling record signing Sebastien Haller if a bid matches their valuation, according to insider ExWHUEmployee.
There has been speculation that the Hammers are considering offloading players in order to offset the losses made during the global health crisis, and it appears that is the case.
Supporters have had a mixed reaction to the news that Haller may be sold:
Wtf a player that has been so neglected. What a joke.

He’s the best striker we’ve had since Ashton, bloke doesn’t get the service, if he does he get us 15-20+ a season

One of the major concerns if the 25-year-old was allowed to leave is whether a suitable replacement would be found. The forward cost £45m and it’s highly unlikely that West Ham would consider paying anything close to that figure for another striker.
For that reason alone, some Irons fans would probably be hoping that Haller remains at the London Stadium. There’s no doubt his first season with the club has been a disappointment but there is a feeling that with the right support he could turn out to be a success. Whether he’ll get the chance to prove that, we shall see.
