It’s possible that West Ham United will regret selling “impressive talent” during the January transfer window.


With a plethora of expected arrivals and departures during the January transfer window, David Moyes has his hands full at West Ham.


The Hammers manager needs to bolster his front line with more quality and speed, but he might have to let go of a few players first because of FFP issues.


Maxwel Cornet is one player who might be leaving because West Ham is reportedly willing to sell him to Fenerbahce for about £6 million this winter.


To be honest, I’m not sure why Moyes is so hesitant to use the international Ivory Coast player. Furthermore, I fail to see why it would be desirable to sell him for so little in January.


I believe it would be an incredibly grave error on the part of the Hammers manager if Moyes allowed Cornet to leave this winter.


For West Ham to sell Maxwel Cornet during the January transfer window would be a grave mistake.

The Hammers may be about to commit a grave error in selling the Ivory Coast international.


As it stands, we are a team completely lacking in direct running and pace, and Cornet is one of the few players who can provide us with those qualities.


Pep Guardiola lauded Cornet, calling him a “impressive talent,” after Lyon defeated Manchester City in the Champions League in 2020 (Chronicle).


The winger is obviously a very good player who hasn’t been given a proper chance by Moyes; he really impressed with Lyon and Burnley before joining the Hammers.


Cornet needs to understand that as long as Moyes is in charge, his time at West Ham is up. The 27-year-old Scottish player has hardly played this season, so Moyes’ decision to start Pablo Fornals over him on Sunday away at Fulham was a severe slap in the face to the Scot.


Especially for such a small transfer fee, I firmly feel that Moyes will be making a grave mistake if he permits Cornet to depart West Ham during the January transfer window.


If the Scot decides to move on with the Ivorian this winter, I have no doubt that he will regret selling him. Hopefully, he will reconsider and give the Ivorian a chance to prove himself over the coming weeks.
