West Ham could lose FIVE players on free transfers this summer

West Ham are in danger of losing FIVE players for free this summer as their contracts expire.

The Hammers are hoping to tie a number of stars down to new deals but some could leave the club.

Many future are set to be discussed at the end of the season with the future of manager David Moyes and West Ham’s Premier League status under threat.

West Ham could lose five stars on free transfers at the end of the campaign.

West Ham star Angelo Ogbonna

West Ham have a number of players out of contract soon with Angelo Ogbonna possibly leaving

Manuel Lanzini has the option to extent his stay at West Ham for two years, but his current deal is up in the summer. The Argentine has impressed in the run to the Conference League quarter-finals, yet his minutes in the Premier League have been restricted, making just seven appearances.

He is reportedly ready to quit the Irons for free and possibly head back to his homeland. Lanzini has played 222 times for the club, scoring 31 goals.

Vladimir Coufal also sees his contract end this summer and similarly can stay for a further two seasons. The Czech right-back has struggled with injuries this term. He has been linked with a move to the likes of Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen. Yet, the passionate Hammer recently expressed his love for West Ham.

Goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski is set to be out for the rest of the season after sustaining a nasty-looking eye injury in the win over Nottingham Forest. Alphonse Areola will play between the sticks and has a chance to claim the No.1 jersey. Fabianski’s deal ends when the season draws to a close, but he does have a one-year option if him and the club choose that he stays.

Aaron Cresswell has lost his place at left-back to Emerson and his best days in claret and blue seem behind him. The 33-year-old has been at West Ham for nine years and his future will be reviewed at the end of the year. A decision on him will likely be impacted by what league the club is in and who is in the dugout.

Angelo Ogbonna is another long servant at West Ham, joining in 2015. He remains an important part of the squad, stepping into the Premier League starting XI amid injuries to the likes of Nayef Aguerd, Kurt Zouma and Craig Dawson. He has also played several times in Europe. Ogbonna is another whose future will be determined when the campaign ends. The Italian is thought to be a leader in the dressing room and loves playing for West Ham.
