Summer transfer budget could reach £175m

West Ham will re-invest any proceeds received from sales from outbound players this summer.

That could create a summer transfer budget as high as £175m but £125m could be more realistic or as low as £100m if Scamacca stays next season.

Declan Rice officially has a sticker price of £120m but could be sold as cheap as £90m

Gianluca Scamacca could be sold as much as £35m to recover the money we spend for him but we took take a loss so perhaps £25m

Vlassic should be sold for £11m if Torino exercise their option but a report today in Italy claims they have put in a lower offer of £7m

Ben Johnson only has one year of a two year option remaining so could be sold but a drop in form and 12 months left on his contract, he could raise up to £9m although he could be sold at a bargain cut down price of £3m like Ashby Harrison if there is no competition for his signature.

Manuel Lanzini is likely to left for free as his contract expires this June and he has little motivation to sign his two year option unless he is staying.

£175m Scenario 1: Rice £120m Scamacca £35m Vlassic £11m Johnson £9m

£125m Scenario 2: Rice £90m Scamacca £25m Vlassic £7m Johnson £3m

£100m Scenario 3: Rice £90m Vlassic £7m Johnson £3m

Whatever the summer transfer budget is, who controls that money remains to be seen.

The West Ham board want want control where the money is spent and are looking for a director of football while David Moyes will retain a final veto of all signings.
