Aaron Cresswell out and Nigerian star Zaidu Sanusi in at West Ham in January claims transfer source in a new report.
The Hammers have clear priorities to sign a striker and left-back in the winter window.

Essentially West Ham must sell to buy – as they did during the summer window, raising £132m plus in sales to fund incomings.
One player who did look set to leave – and indeed wanted to depart – in the summer was Aaron Cresswell.
The left-back remained despite links to Wolves – a move which could be revived if reports are to be believed.

“David Moyes is actively pushing for an upgrade to the position in the new year,” the report states
“We’ve had it confirmed to us that Hammers scouts have been working hard on a number of potential options and one of those who has impressed is Porto’s Zaidu Sanusi.
“The Nigerian international, who has been with Porto since 2020, has been watched closely by West Ham including technical director Tim Steidten – who has appreciated the player for a long time…
“If the Hammers are successful in their chase for Zaidu, then there is every chance that Cresswell will move on in January.”
