AC Milan boss hints reported West Ham target Keisuke Honda could be sold

Keisuke Honda

West Ham United have been linked with Keisuke Honda.

AC Milan boss Sinisa Mihajlovic has told reporters that playmaker Keisuke Honda has had his chance at the club and vows no player is indispensable, Gianluca di Marzio report.

The Japan international has barely featured for AC Milan this season, with his last start coming in mid-September, as Mihajlovic looks to improve his faltering side.

According to a report in The Sun, West Ham are plotting a move to bring him in during the January transfer window, and Calciomercato claim the player wishes to leave the club.

Responding to reporters’ questions on the subject, Milan’s Serbian coach admits that Honda has been given ample opportunity to shine at the San Siro and that every player has a price.

“He has had his chance but here, no-one is indispensable,” Mihajlovic told Gianluca di Marzio.

While his response was only brief, it was a far cry from a manager intent on keeping one of his star players amid speculation of a possible January exit.

Honda has fallen out of favour at the San Siro, and with reports suggesting he wants to move on, then there would be little reason to keep him against his wishes.

West Ham are clearly going places under new boss Slaven Bilic and with their move to the Olympic Stadium on the horizon, they certainly are an attractive proposition.
