If David Moyes wants to help propel West Ham to success again this season, then he has to get things right in the transfer market this January.
The Hammers are already into the Europa League Round of 16, and are also sitting pretty in sixth place in the Premier League.
Though they are five points behind Tottenham in fifth, they do have a game in hand which, if won, would bring them right into the fight for a Champions League finish this season.
A brilliant summer window in the end, which saw Edson Alvarez, James Ward-Prowse, Mohammed Kudus and Konstantinos Mavropanos all join the club, has helped improve the Hammers massively.
Whilst it’s unlikely that the East Londoners will make a big splash this month, one or two diligent sales and purchases could be all it takes to see West Ham cement their place at the top end of the table.
One player that looks to have played his last game for the club after being sent off against Bristol City is Said Benrahma.
The player has never really enjoyed the confidence of his manager, and with FootMercato reporting that Marseille are preparing a second bid for the player’s services, it appears likely he’ll move on.
The outlet also note that the Hammers want €23m for Benrahma, which shouldn’t prove prohibitive.
