West Ham are willing to let an important player go after his shocking second-half of the season.

For a side that plays defensive football, with players who cost the club a lot of money, to concede the most goals in their history is absolutely unacceptable.

There’s been a real lack of cohesion, quality and, worryingly, leadership. Unfortunately, you have to put a lot of that down to Kurt Zouma. On the pitch, he seems to lack the qualities required to be a successful captain and that’s been detrimental to the Hammers’ season.

While he has been poor in a lot of games this season, that’s not really his fault. Repeated injuries to his knee have clearly had an affect on his mobility and it’s caused him to get caught out countless times.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, West Ham are willing to listen to offers for the French centre-back, according to Football Insider. The 29-year-old has previously been subject to interest from Saudi Arabia, and the Hammers will undoubtedly be hoping they come back in for him in order to maximise profit.

Obviously at his age and with his injury record, it’s hard to imagine many clubs paying a particularly high price.

Even then, perhaps he would be better when playing less consistently – it would allow him to recover between each match and would also mean we keep an extremely popular player in the dressing room.
