West Ham United insider Sean Whetstone has made a hugely exciting Hammers summer transfer claim on his personal Twitter account.

David Moyes has already made five very good signings this summer in the form of Alphonse Areola, Nayef Aguerd, Flynn Downes, Gianluca Scamacca and Maxwel Cornet.

However, the harsh truth of the matter is that the Scot needs to bring at least three or four more top-class players to the London Stadium, if we are to challenge on all fronts this season.

The likes of Andriy Yarmolenko, Ryan Fredericks, Issa Diop, Alex Kral and Arthur Masuaku have all left West Ham this summer whilst Mark Noble retired.

Meanwhile, Nikola Vlasic has left to join Torino on loan.

The additions of a quality left-back, a centre-back, a powerful central midfielder and a versatile attacker should be what Moyes is aiming for between now and transfer deadline day…as a bare minimum. And it seems as though the Hammers have plenty of bids in for players at the moment…

According to Sean Whetstone – writer for Claret and Hugh, the Hammers are casting their net far and wide this summer:

Whilst West Ham have been accused of using a scattergun approach to transfers in the past, we believe that things are different at the London Stadium now.

West Ham could complete a quality transfer window this summer because David Moyes is going about it in the right way.

Moyes only wants top tier players and perhaps all the bids that we have in at the moment are for truly elite stars.

One thing’s for sure, if we are to make any progress over the next few years, we need to keep targeting players of similar quality to Scamacca, Aguerd and Cornet.

Moyes has worked wonders since returning to the London Stadium for the second time in December 2019.

Now he needs to take us to another level. It’s been a good start in the transfer market for the West Ham boss this summer. But there is still a very long way to go.

Whether the owners manage to get deals for the players that Moyes wants over the line before deadline day remains to be seen though.
