Julen Lopetegui given assurances West Ham stars won't be sold - pundit

Julen Lopetegui will have been given assurances West Ham won’t look to sell their star players this summer.

Speaking on the latest edition of Football Insider’s Inside Track podcast, former Tottenham and England goalkeeper Paul Robinson revealed Hammers fans wouldn’t be pleased if the club allowed Lucas Paqueta, Mohammed Kudus and Jarrod Bowen to all leave in the upcoming transfer window.

Football Insider revealed on 5 May Lopetegui is likely to be the next Irons boss after the club have offered him an “enormous” deal to replace David Moyes.

There is expected to be interest in Paqueta again this summer after Football Insider revealed in March Manchester City will return with a bid to sign the Brazilian.

Kudus and Bowen could also come in for some attention after the pair have both put in some outstanding performances this season.

Robinson believes it could have been agreed with Lopetegui for one of the exit-linked stars to move on this summer to help strengthen his budget as the Spaniard looks to stamp his authority on the squad.


“I’m sure Lopetegui will have been given some assurances that the majority of their star players will be staying at the club,” he told Football Insider.

“It may have been an agreement that one of them is used in a sacrificial way that allows the manager a bigger budget.


“You look whether one of Kudus or Paqueta goes and the manager is given the resulting funds to improve the squad in the areas that he sees fit, you could understand that.

“But I can’t see West Ham fans being pleased if the new manager comes in and Kudus, Paqueta and Bowen were all to leave.”
