Danny Ings is currently earning £6.5m a year but he hasn't scored a goal yet in 20 appearances for West Ham so far this campaign. The striker, who was scoring goals for fun for his previous clubs, has struggled to replicate that form in West Ham. The club started brilliantly this season but due to some injuries they have fallen down to the 6th place in the points table and Ing's form has been a huge concern for David Moyes.

2. Divock Origi (Nottingham Forest) – 2.38/10

The Liverpool cult hero moved to Nottingham Forest from AC Milan in the summer, but he has played only 178 minutes in the Premier League. Origi is earning £6.24m a year, but Forest are not getting value for money from the Belgian international. There are already rumours that the striker could leave for a club in the United States before the transfer window closes.

3. Fabio Silva (Wolves) – 3.10/10

The Portuguese forward joined Scottish side Rangers on loan for the second half of the season. He failed to contribute for Wolves before the New Year, with only 8 league appearances. The 21-year-old was earning £4.16m a year at Molineux but he barely got a chance to prove himself on the pitch and manager Gary O’Neil wasn't convinced to offer him more minutes.

4. Antony (Manchester United) – 3.16/10

The Brazilian International is struggling for the Red Devils. Antony has failed to score or provide a single assist in 17 league appearances so far this campaign, despite taking a huge salary of £10.4m a year. The 23-year-old could be sold by United at the end of the season. Manchester United paid Ajax £85m for the player 18 months ago.

5. Marcus Rashford (Manchester United) – 3.55 /10

Marcus Rashford scored 17 goals in the Premier League last season but has only managed to score 4 so far this campaign. Despite earning £15.6m a year, Rashford is struggling to score or provide the assists the fans are expecting from him. The England International has even been benched by manager Erik ten Hag at times this season as he hasn't been so influential for the club lately.
