Pundit urges West Ham to replace three “overrated” and “average” players

Posted by

West Ham need to strengthen in attack this summer as they have too many “overrated” and “average” players in that department, according to Gabriel Agbonlahor.

The pundit named Said Benrahma, Manuel Lanzini and Pablo Fornals as three players in that area of the pitch that aren’t at the same level as Michail Antonio and Jarrod Bowen.

“They need that money invested in their squad,”Agbonlahor told Football Insider.

“About from Antonio and Bowen, there are no other attacking players in that squad that I rate.

“I think Benrahma is overrated, I think Lanzini and Fornals are overrated, they’re average. They need more help, they need more pace on the wings.

“I like Bowen on the right but can they get more pace on the left-wing? Benrahma drifts out of games and is subbed early.

“Another centre-midfielder as well is needed. They need players so they need that £150million.

“When you’re fighting for top-four, £150million might be four players so it’s not as much as it sounds.”

  1. If only Agbonlahor had been in the same class as Fornals and Lanzini then maybe he could make comment!!

  2. Agnonlahor slags off everyone he was on there last night saying Vardy was just ok and Darren Bent was better, has he seen some of vardys goals,he’s such a poor pundit I hardly listen to talk sport anymore apart from the sports bar

  3. I don’t think Benrhama, Lanzini and Fornals are overrated: they’re all very good ‘between the lines’. Whether they should all be on the pitch at the same time when our only striker is running his heart out for a goalscoring chance is a question for the manager, but I’m not going to slag him off, as he has taken us to a better level than we’ve been used to for the past 20 years.
