West Ham United boss David Moyes allegedly could try to sell defensive duo Issa Diop and Arthur Masuaku in the summer transfer window.
That’s according to football journalist Peter O’Rourke who told Give Me Sport that David Moyes is keen to clear some of the deadwood out of the London Stadium this summer.
The Scot has a lot of work to do at the London Stadium in the transfer market before the start of next season.
Andriy Yarmolenko and Ryan Fredericks will be out of contract in the summer whilst Mark Noble is set to hang up his boots.
Meanwhile, Alex Kral will surely be sent back to Spartak Moscow.
With so many set to depart, Moyes will have to make at least five or six new signings at the end of this season. Even then we would still be fairly short of options.
It seems as though a couple more could be heading out of East London as well though…
That’s according to Peter O’Rourke who told Give Me Sport that the Scot is keen to shift on some of his fringe players before the start of next season.
Selling Masuaku and Diop would certainly be a prudent move.
The 28-year-old left-back and the 25-year-old centre-back have arguably been West Ham’s two worst performers since Moyes took over at the London Stadium for the second time back in December 2019.
Quite how much money Moyes will have at his disposal this summer remains to be seen.
Selling Masuaku and Diop could bering in a combined £20 million according to Claret and Hugh and The Daily Mail.
That would be a very decent return for two players who have quite frankly underperformed for far too long now.
Whether West Ham will get anything like that for Masuaku and Diop remains to be seen, however.
