West Ham could earn brilliant money by letting go of a flop signing, according to reports.

No matter how hard they try, West Ham have struggled to find a replacement for Michail Antonio. Despite his brilliant form as of late, his flaws are still obvious. The main issue is his age and how struggles to play a full game or back to back matches.

The likes of Sebastian Haller and Gianluca Scamacca have done brilliantly abroad, but have failed to find form when playing for the Hammers. Obviously, not every player is suited to the Premier League and you could argue this is the case for them.

However, one player that argument doesn’t work for is Danny Ings. The Englishman has always scored plenty of goals in the Premier League when fit but, for some reason, he has failed to do so at the London Stadium. While he has put in some good performances when called upon in 2024, he still hasn’t done enough to warrant his price tag, nor his ridiculously high wages.

According to Football Insider, the Hammers could look to offload the striker in order to raise funds and lessen the wage bill. Ings reportedly earns  a staggering £125,000 a week or £6.5 million a year, making him one of the highest earners at the club.

Even if they were to let him go for free, alleviating that much money from the wage bill could make a substantial financial difference when it comes to recruiting in the Summer.

One could argue that Ings hasn’t had a fair chance lately, and they would not be wrong in the slightest. However, he is realistically never going to be the club’s first choice striker and given that it is expected they will bring one in before the start of next season, it doesn’t make sense to be spending that much money on a third-choice player’s wages.
