West Ham United boss Manuel Pellegrini is fully focused on his summer transfer plans.
The Hammers boss recently opened up on his summer transfer plans as reported by whufc.com.
“I want to do it better next season,” Pellegrini said.
“I’m always planning with the sporting director but we’re not going to do anything before we finish this season.
“It all depends on a lot of different things that we must analyse.”

No signs of recruitment letting up
Hammers co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold pushed the boat out to bring Pellegrini to the club last year.
They then backed him with an unprecedented £100 million warchest.
According to a new report from fellow Hammers website Claret and Hugh there will be no letting up this summer either.
Indeed C&H claims a ‘top level source’ has told them that West Ham could be on the verge of completing new signings by the end of May.

West Ham’s big summer six
The site says West Ham want to bring in six players this summer.
As the old saying goes there is no smoke without fire.
So based on recent reports are these the six new faces Pellegrini wants at the London Stadium.
Celta Vigo striker remains the club’s number one target and will take up most of the club’s budget too.
Relegated Fulham striker scored 13 goals this season and what he lacks in pace he makes up for with his aerial ability and hold-up play.
Alaves are unlikely to field star centre back Guillermo Maripan in any of their two remaining La Liga fixtures as they don’t want to jeopardise his potential move to West Ham United, as reported by Marca.
The Chilean international has emerged as a top target for The Hammers as Pellegrini seeks to strengthen his backline.
Emerging Spain midfield talent is surplus to requirements as part of Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid overhaul.
West Ham are one of three English clubs who want Le Havre defensive midfield starlet Pape Gueye this summer, according to L’Equipe. The France U19 international has established himself as one of the country’s most exciting young talents this season.
With Hammers backup goalkeeper Adrian expected to depart when his contract expires, Pellegrini needs a new number two.
