'Sell him tomorrow' - Exclusive: Moyes told to bin West Ham big name after transfer reveal
Frank McAvennie has urged West Ham boss David Moyes to sell Sebastien Haller “tomorrow” as AS Monaco line up a reported summer move for him.
The Hammers legend, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, insisted he would sell the 26-year-old immediately if a respectable bid arrived.
Le 10 Sport in France claim that new Moncao manager Niko Kovac wants a reunion with the striker he coached at Eintracht Frankfurt.
Haller was signed from the German side for £45million last July but has failed to meet expectations at the London Stadium.
The French centre-forward has scored 7 goals in 33 appearances in his first season but has fallen behind Michail Antonio in the pecking order.
McAvennie claimed the striker has done nothing to justify his hefty price tag.

“If a decent bid came in I would sell him,” he told Football Insider. “Oh God yeah, I would sell him tomorrow.
“By his own admission he has not hit the ground running. He has not shown anything to me to suggest he is worth £40million. He has not done it.
“I do not know what they are going to do with Haller unless they play him and Antonio up front because he cannot play there on his own.”
The Irons secured their Premier League status for another season last night with a 1-1 draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford.
Antonio scored for David Moyes’s side, his eighth goal in his last six matches.
