West Ham transfer news: Michail Antonio now available in January after concerns over his form

West Ham United are a team in trouble right now, sitting in the Premier League relegation zone.

Two points separates the bottom seven clubs in the league, but David Moyes’ side don’t look like winning any time soon.

A report from the Daily Mail suggests that the club are now ready to sell one of their stars this month.

The Hammers have won just one of their last 10 league matches, a 2-0 victory over Bournemouth in October.

None of their new players have hit the ground running, and Moyes is still trying to work out his best team.

The Daily Mail now report that the Hammers have made a bid to sign Aston Villa forward Danny Ings.

They go on to say that West Ham are now ready to sell Michail Antonio this window.

The 32-year-old has been very out of form this season, scoring just twice in 18 league appearances.

He’s struggled when rotated in and out of the team in place of Scamacca, and the Hammers are ready to cut their losses.

West Ham ready to sell Antonio

The report states that, ‘West Ham have concerns over the form of Michail Antonio, who they are prepared to sell this window amid interest from rival Premier League clubs.’

Fellow strugglers Everton have been linked with a move for the Jamaican international in this window.

Whether West Ham would want to sell Antonio to such a close rival this month is up for debate.

Wolves have been reportedly had interest in Antonio, but they’re also trying to drag themselves away from the relegation zone.

The £85,000-a-week forward has been brilliant over the years for West Ham after being converted into a striker.

His pace, power and clever movement in the box has caused defenders problems for years.

The overall form of his teammates won’t have helped his goal scoring exploits this season.

But West Ham now appear to be ready to sell Antonio, although strengthening a direct rival will certainly be on their mind.
