Hammers boss David Moyes is still yet to make a new signing in the summer transfer window – amazing really when you think that we’ve lost Declan Rice, Manuel Lanzini, Gianluca Scamacca and probably Aaron Cresswell too.

I’m hoping that the Scot gets at least two or three signings over the line before we play the Cherries this weekend.

Here’s how I think we could line up if West Ham bring in a few new additions…

How West Ham could line up against Bournemouth with 3 new signings

As things stand it seems as though Moyes is close to bringing in three players – Harry Maguire and Scott McTominay from Manchester United (The Mirror), and Ajax ace Edson Alvarez.

If Moyes manages to bring those three players in over the course of the next few days, they should be ready to play against Bournemouth on Saturday.

Here’s what our starting XI might look like:

I can see Moyes using three at the back this season, especially if he signs Maguire.

What I like about this formation as well is Jarrod Bowen playing alongside Danny Ings should help bring out the best in the 30-year-old striker.

Whilst that team above definitely needs another two or three players, it will still be more than capable of getting a result against the Cherries.

The key here will be for West Ham to get the new signings completed before Thursday, so the new boys will have a couple of days to settle in to their surroundings at the London Stadium.

The fact that we’ve left it this late is a joke in my opinion, but it’s not too late to salvage what has been a really poor transfer window so far.
