Jack Wilshere delivered a really exciting assessment of West Ham’s squad when speaking to reporters last night.
And his comments should get the Hammers fans buzzing ahead of the new season.
Manuel Pellegrini has already brought in Sebastien Haller and Pablo Fornals.
West Ham are expected to make a sustained push for the top seven this season, and despite their inconsistent pre-season form, many of the club’s fans will be the most excited that they have been in a very long time.
The Hammers have been floundering around the lower end of the division for far too long, and they now seem to be on the verge of achieving something very special.
Haller, 25, will surely be a a huge hit, whilst Fornals, 23, looks like an exceptional player.
And Wilshere told the club’s official website how much he is looking forward to playing alongside the duo:
“Going forward we’ve got so many players who can create something. As a midfielder, it’s a dream, because you know if you give the ball to somebody they’re either going to give it back to you or turn and make something happen. In Haller, we have the big man up front. You give the ball to him and he bounces it back, or he can run behind. He’s strong so he can hold it up too.”
He went on to say:
“Pablo also looked like he’s been here for years. He played in that No10 position and he kept the ball moving. He showed a little bit of skill and he gets in the box. You can see him getting some goals this year and making some goals. They’re both great additions to the squad.”
If Haller and Fornals hit the ground running, there is no reason why West Ham cannot challenge for a top seven spot, or even gatecrash the top six.
Exciting times indeed for Hammers fans.
