It has been a season to forget for West Ham United as there are a number of issues at a club that are sitting above the relegation zone. However, who should be shown the door come the summer?

Manuel Lanzini

An underperformer this season, Lanzini has failed to hit the mark for the Hammers this season having missed most of last season with an ACL injury. Fans said that the Argentine would not be the same player that he was before the injury picked up.

Despite signing a new contract in the summer, he has lacked anything special and was criticised against Sheffield United for his vision with striker Seb Haller through on goal.

The fact he picked up a collarbone injury against Burnley which saw him out for a few weeks highlights how as an injury-prone player, it could be a good option for the Hammers to sell him if they want to add transfer funds.

Carlos Sanchez

Arriving on a free transfer from Serie A side Fiorentina having previously played for Aston Villa and Espanyol (loan).

There is only really one word that can be used to describe the 33-year-old centre defensive midfielder: dreadful.

He has had no impact on the pitch since his arrival, often failing in defence and midfield. He has made less than 20 appearances since joining.

His passes often fall short off the mark (as seen against WBA in the FA Cup last weekend) and with Tomas Souchek arriving on loan from Czech side Slavia Prague, Sanchez could be on the move.

The Colombian who has made a total of 88 caps for his country has already been rumoured to be leaving the club in January perhaps heading to Turkey or Spain.

Fabian Balbuena

Arriving from Corinthians in 2018, the centre-back has been inconsistent since his arrival at the club having a partnership with Issa Diop, Angelo Ogbonna, and Winston Reid.

However, this season he has lacked in defensive qualities (like the whole team really), he is not his former self and has often been playing passes short off the mark, as seen against West Brom.

This lack of determination is something that is stressing fans with the Irons in a relegation battle. If the Hammers were to sell him his transfer value would be around the £10m mark and would be a player that would fit into a lower league Premier League side like Aston Villa or Watford.


Arriving last summer from Bundesliga side Borrusia Dortmund, the Ukrainian winger has not had the chance to prove himself and is very injury prone. His one main downfall though is pace – something he lacks like much of the Hammers team.

Despite a positive start to the season scoring against Norwich and Manchester United, his latter being a sublime goal as he turned on a dime.

However, he has picked up two injuries which has seen him out for long spells both times, costing the Irons £17m and has been a flop with Antonio often seen as the first choice.

Realistically, the East London side could see the Ukrainian go for something in the region of £13m.

So Hammers fans, who would you sell in the Summer?
