Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United were one of the busiest clubs in the January transfer market before the start of the season and they are getting ready for yet another summer of similar activity, before the next season.

The manager has been looking at some of the best players to add to his squad at the end of the season and has been linked with some big names in Europe.

But one name that is now doing the rounds is West Ham star Michail Antonio.

Arguably the best player for the Hammers this season, Antonio, is one of the most versatile players in the Premier League at the moment.

In 24 appearances for Slaven Bilic’s side this season, the English star has 8 goals and 5 assists to his name and stands as the most effective player in front of goal for the Hammers this season.

However, West Ham have not been able to build on their previous season and are in danger of losing their star in the summer.
