West Ham are in total disarray at the moment. Tensions between the board and the fans have been slowly bubbling all summer. And now it’s reached boiling point.
The sale of Grady Diangana to West Brom seems to be the straw that broke the camel’s back.
Even the player’s are revolting. Mark Noble, Jack Wilshere and Declan Rice were among those to voice their discontent after Grady was moved on for around £20 million.
And the owners’ position now seems to be untenable.
But there could be some better news on the horizon.
The Telegraph reported last night that the Hammers have made a £27 million bid for Burnley centre-back James Tarkowski.
Claret and Hugh recently claimed that West Ham boss David Moyes could also make a move for Brentford’s £10 million-rated full-back Rico Henry this summer.
On top of those links, there has also been talk that the Hammers could make a move for Porto hitman Moussa Marega (The Express).
Now, losing Diangana is obviously an incredibly bitter pill to swallow. But if we somehow manage to bring all of the above mentioned names to the London Stadium, it could end up being a great transfer window.
Moyes desperately needs to add a new left-back, centre-back and centre-forward to his ranks this summer.
And Tarkowski, Henry and Marega would all be superb additions. They would certainly be upgrades on the likes of Aaron Cresswell and Fabian Balbuena.
A lot still needs to happen if West Ham are to sign all three of those names. Perhaps we will have to make one more big sale.
Moyes should be doing everything he can to convince with the club’s much-maligned owners to part with some cash. And as unlikely as it may seem at the moment, it might just end up being a successful transfer window after all.
