According to Football Insider, West Ham United could be forced to sell up to three first team players to help cope with the financial stress of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had an unprecedented impact on the financial side of football, as it has most other industries in the world.

Reports suggest West Ham club chiefs have growing concerns over the finances at the club and are exploring the option of cashing in on a number of first team players.

The reports suggest that, while the Hammers are considering selling some assets, Declan Rice is not among the players who they would consider moving on.

However, Brazilian Felipe Anderson is one name touted as a potentially expendable player.

Meanwhile, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the Irons finally cash in on Issa Diop, who has been linked with big moves in each of the last two windows.

West Ham have recently announced a £28m loss for last season. That comes despite the fact that their turnover increased by £15m to £191m.

The COVID-19 pandemic could eventually mean the Premier League season is voided. If that were to happen, West Ham would see an estimated £37m shortfall when it comes to revenue from broadcasting, matchday and commercial streams.

As well as that, transfer fees are expected to plummet in the next window, whenever that may be. As a result, West Ham and many others will likely have to sell players for a lot less than they signed them for to help make ends meet.
