West Ham United are currently going through a transition period and we could see some rapid overhaul of the squad this summer. Slaven Bilic is poised to make some changes after the disappointments of the last season. The Hammers endured a torrid time in the Premier League as they finished in the 11th position, a downfall from the 2015/16 season.
The Hammers lost their star player Dimitri Payet in this winter transfer window who made a controversial move to Marseille after throwing tantrums at the London Stadium.
The departure of Payet made a huge difference as the club haven’t really made the effort to replace him with a potential candidate. Alongside this, Bilic has had his injury problems with the squad, as a number of players spent a large time on the sidelines. So, We might witness a number of departures from the club and here are the probable three candidates who have a very high chance of leaving the club this summer:
The winger had a pretty disappointing season as he racked up three goals and as many assists in 21 Premier League matches. Much was expected from the Algerian international upon his arrival but he proved to be a hoax signing.
He impressed late in the season, with his display but Bilic might sanction his move, as the gaffer doesn’t want to take his chances in the next season. A number of clubs have already lined up offers for him and if a suitable offer comes, Bilic should let him free.
The forward lit up his inaugural 2014/15 season by finding the net 10 times for the Hammers but since then, he has been of no use. Injuries after injuries hampered his campaign and he made just four appearances last term.
Despite having a number of forwards, Bilic had to heavily rely on Michail Antonio, who probably has played in all positions apart from the keeper. The manager simply cannot afford this next season and the arrival of Javier Hernandez will make it easier for him.
The lanky forward is renowned for his injury traits. The English international has a reputation of getting injured pretty frequently and the last season has been the same. He hardly was seen on the pitch and his injury woes turned out to be very brutal for the Hammers.
If he stays fit, he does have the quality to make some serious damage to the opponents but his consistent injury issues could create a big problem in upcoming days for his side. There won’t be a dearth of suitors for the 28-year-old and Bilic should probably cash in on him.
