Regarding West Ham United’s transfer targets for the January window, Sean Whetstone has intensified his efforts.
To make room in the roster and adhere to FFP regulations, West Ham is actively offloading players.
Thilo Kehrer’s move to Monaco has started that process, and eventually, West Ham will recover the majority of their initial £10.5 million investment.
Players like Said Benrahma, Nayef Aguerd, Maxwel Cornet, Danny Ings, and Nayef Aguerd are anticipated to follow Kehrer out the Hammers exit door if the proper money is offered.

Over the Christmas break, there was talk that West Ham needed to concentrate on acquiring homegrown talent.
Even said, the Hammers are still connected to a wide range of players that don’t fit the mould of native products.
A board confidant has now discussed the issue.
Sean Whetstone has intensified his pursuit of West Ham players during the January transfer window.
A player must have participated in English Football Association play for a club for at least three years prior to turning 21 in order to be deemed homegrown. Most importantly, however, they don’t have to speak English.
However, a player’s nationality does not guarantee that they are a native of their country. For instance, Etienne Green, the custodian for Saint-Étienne who has previously been connected to a transfer to West Ham, serves as the starter for the England Under-21 team. But if he signed with a Premier League team, he wouldn’t be considered one.
Which targets fit the bill?
Among the players who would be considered homegrown who have recently been linked to the Hammers are:
