The Scot needs to sign at least one top-class striker, an established centre-back, a gifted number 10 and a hard-working central midfielder before the transfer window slams shut at the end of this month.

Links with Tammy Abraham and Matheus Pereira have gone cold.

Meanwhile, deals for Kurt Zouma and/or Nikola Milenkovic seem to be a long way off from happening.

Ex has claimed that transfer progress ‘has been quite frustrating’.


The Hammers insider claims that talks to sign Zouma have stalled whilst our valuation of Matheus Pereira is a long way off of West Brom’s.

The fact that we have left it this late to do our business is rather strange.

We trust Moyes, however, and have full faith in the Scot that he will bring the players he needs into the club within the next few weeks.

This next week could be crucial. A couple of good signings and everything will change very quickly.

We’ve all got to keep the faith and judge the owners and Moyes on September 1st. There is not really much more we can do is there!
