West Ham have taken a £25m hit and sold Haller to Ajax for £20m.

He had a good start to his time at West Ham, but looked lazy as hell whenever I saw him play.

Much as I like bits to his play, I'd bite someones hand off if they offered £20m for Joelinton.

This. I'll be surprised if anyone offers that though in this current climate.. more like 10 - 15 million at most.

I'd be shocked if anyone bid as much as £2m for him.
Kindly deeds done for free!

We’d struggle to give him away. If someone was to lift the lid and reveal that all of his highlight videos and his profile/history of being a footballer was a total fabrication it really wouldn’t shock me that much.

Has there ever been a player whose market value has shrunk in such a way before?

Danny Drinkwater? Cost Chelsea over £30m.

Juan Veron (very expensive at the time) and Alexis Sanchez?

More recently, Harry Maguire surely won’t be valued at anywhere near £80m now.

I would think we would easily get £10m for him if we're being objective. I don't think this is the league or system for him to truly thrive.

Can add Pepe to that list...never worth anywhere near the £70m Arsenal paid (even when he now inevitably scores against us).

Probably every forward West Ham has bought in the past 8 years really. There have been a lot of forward flops in the PL the past several years, though most get dropped and disappear from the public high faster than Joelinton.

Really quiet window so far, not surprising given the situation and strain on club finances (a lot of which were unsustainable pre-pandemic let alone now).
