West Ham United boss David Moyes is prepared for a clearout to raise funds for his own squad building plans.
The London Evening Standard says the Hammers boss is keen to bed in a younger core of players at the London Stadium, moving away from recruiting the likes of Andriy Yarmolenko and Carlos Sanchez in the future.
West Ham are, like most clubs, in a precarious situation financially due to the coronavirus pandemic, but do not see selling Declan Rice, who is contracted until 2024 with an option of a year extension, as a solution to any problems further down the line.
Furthermore the departures of Pablo Zabaleta and Sanchez, the latter thought to be on £75,000-a-week, at the end of their contracts this summer will free up a significant amount of cash to be reinvested.
