Michail Antonio hints of leaving West Ham2 min read
He has been linked with a move premier league rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers
Reggae Boyz main striker Michail Antonio has revealed that there is a possibility that he will be leaving West Ham within the current January transfer window.
The striker signed for West Ham in 2015 after joining from Nottingham Forest in a transfer that cost the Hammers PS7 million (US$8.6 million).
The 32-year-old revealed that he has been receiving offers from different clubs. Antonio broke Paolo di Canio’s goal-scoring record for West Ham when he secured the 48th goal for the club. This means that he is the Hammers’ Premier League top scorer.
West Ham is currently engaged in a relegation battle and Antonio has only scored four goals and delivered three assists. Antonio’s struggles in front of goal might have prompted coach David Moyes to look for another striker.
The Hammers have already signed Danny Ings from Aston Villa but unfortunately he has joined Guanluca Scammaca in the injury list. West Ham is currently being linked with Brazilian striker Marcos Leonardo. This could be the end of Antonio’s career in West Ham if the club sign another striker.
The Jamaican striker revealed that he is not ruling out a deadline move to another club. He has been linked with a move premier league rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers.
According to Antonio, this has been one of his toughest Premier League campaigns in his career. He admitted that leaving the Hammer’s would be very difficult for him because the club has a special place in his heart. He revealed that he has enjoyed his time with the club.
