West Ham’s task of rebuilding their squad this summer looks set to become a lot more difficult, as their star-man is eyeing an exit.
After losing Dimitri Payet to Marseille in January, West Ham now face the prospect of also losing the services of Michail Antonio- as The Times states he’s seeking an exit.
The 27-year-old has excelled for Slaven Bilic’s side and has managed to provide some positivity in what’s been a disappointing campaign for the Hammers, although he may have played his last game for the club.
Currently injured, and out for the remainder of the season, frustrated Antonio is seeking an exit due to resentment over the treatment of his hamstring injury and a collapse of his relationship with the board.
Antonio has rejected fresh terms with the Hammers, due to being disappointed with an offer of wages lower than January additions Jose Fonte and Robert Snodgrass, which leaves the former Nottingham Forest man on the verge of an exit.
TransferMarkt values Antonio at £15.3m, although it’s likely West Ham will push for a significantly higher fee for his services this summer.
