David Moyes will be meticulously plotting ahead of the summer transfer window.
The Scot should be looking to sign at least five players this summer if we do indeed wrap up Europa League qualification for next season.
The Hammers owners surely understand that they need to back Moyes this summer.
West Ham transfer budget gets huge boost
High level Hammers insiders Claret and Hugh claim that the East London outfit could earn as much as £34 million if we finish in sixth spot in the Premier League table this season.
That is allegedly £24 million more than the club had forecast at the start of the campaign.
C&H claims that Moyes will be handed a £50m summer transfer budget. He will also be given 100% of the proceeds from any potential sales.
In the modern era, £50 million actually isn’t that much money, especially considering the fact that Moyes will need to sign so many players if West Ham qualify for the Europa League.
If the Hammers manage to move on the likes of Felipe Anderson and Andriy Yarmolenko, however, Moyes will have more money to work with.
The Scot will still have to be thrifty in his transfer business though. That shouldn’t be a problem. It’s what Moyes is good at.
Claret and Hugh do claim that the West Ham boss will be offered more money if he finds the right player, however.
It is also suggested by the insiders that Moyes will be backed to sign a ‘top quality’ striker.
If the Hammers owners show some genuine ambition this summer, we could really be onto something. Moyes’s vision is taking shape. We just need the owners to play ball now.
