West Ham manager David Moyes is ready to continue his spell as the Irons’ manager but wants a major clearout and some big-money spending in the summer, according to a report.
The Express claim on their website that the Hammers are willing to offer the former Everton and Manchester United boss a two-year deal having arrived at the London Stadium in November on a contract which expires at the end of the season.
If he is to stay, it is said that he wants a major cull of up to 10 first team players, and that he will be handed a £60million kitty to reinvest in the squad, although such big-money deals will only happen if the club secure their Premier League safety.
The Irons currently sit just three points off the drop zone in 14th ahead of kick off in their home clash against Burnley, coming into the clash off the back of a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Swansea City last weekend.
Football Insider verdict
The £60million budget might seem a lot to most, but when you consider that is the same value of three Marko Arnautovics, it does not translate well for the Hammers’ transfer future. Moyes will therefore have to identify who is surplus to requirements and try ship them off for as high a price as possible, and with the claims of 10 potential departures, it looks to be all change in east London. Still, none of this will come to fruition if Moyes cannot guide the club to safety, and last weekend’s shambolic display at Swansea will not fill supporters’ hearts with much hope.
