According to a report from the Evening Standard, West Ham United boss David Moyes has been given the green light to spend the £20 million received from the sale of Sebastien Haller.
The Scot is allegedly prioritising a new centre-forward and a left-back this month.
The Hammers squad is threadbare. It was before Sebastien Haller and Robert Snodgrass left the London Stadium yesterday.
Now it is a matter of urgency that Moyes brings in at least two new signings before the end of the month.
David Moyes given funds to strengthen
According to the Evening Standard, the Scot has been given the green light to reinvest the money made from Haller’s sale into his squad.
It is claimed that two of Moyes’s key targets are Bournemouth hitman Josh King and Stade Reims striker Boulaye Dia.
The Scot also wants to sign a left-back, however, according to the Evening Standard. It must be said though, we are incredibly weak in central midfield.
Surely Moyes will be looking to sign a central midfielder this month? And a top class one at that.
He absolutely cannot rely on Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek to play every single game this season. It’s quite simply too much to ask of the duo.
Let’s trust in Moyes and see what we’ve got at the end of the month.
The Scot has made some superb signings since taking charge at the London Stadium in December 2019 including the likes of Tomas Soucek, Jarrod Bowen and Vladimir Coufal.
Hopefully he can find that kind of magic again in the transfer window this month. West Ham really need it, that’s for sure.
