David Moyes has delivered a huge West Ham transfer update as the boss opens up on multiple deals in the works.

If West Ham fans thought the summer transfer window had been busy up to now, they haven’t seen anything yet it seems.

Not if comments from Hammers manager David Moyes are anything to go by.

West Ham made their first signing of the window on Thursday with the arrival of midfield ace Edson Alvarez.

And the east Londoners have been heavily linked with a plethora of others after the sales of Declan Rice, Gianluca Scamacca an Nikola Vlasic.

Meanwhile speculation abounds that Lucas Paqueta could be on his way to Manchester City for in excess of £90m after West Ham rejected an £88m offer.

Deals for James Ward-Prowse and Harry Maguire are in the works but not yet complete.

And one thing is for sure, West Ham certainly need major reinforcements.

Now Moyes has delivered a huge West Ham transfer update as the boss opens up on multiple deals in the works.

And speaking in his first press conference of the new campaign, the Scot says he hopes incomings will be ‘like London buses now’ following the capture of Alvarez.

“We’re really happy to get him (Alvarez) through, we’ve worked hard all summer and hopefully they’ll be like London buses now,” Moyes told the press as reported on the club’s official website.

“James Ward-Prowse is having a medical just now. We’ve agreed a fee but it’s not right I speak about him as he’s not yet our player…

“We’ve had an offer from Manchester City (for Paqueta), but at the moment it’s not anywhere near meeting our valuation.

“We’ve had a bit accepted by Manchester United (for Maguire), but while he’s not our player I’m not in position to discuss him, really.”

Assuming the Ward-Prowse and Maguire deals go through, West Ham – ideally – will need a new left-back, attacking midfielder and at least one striker.

Whether they’ve left themselves enough time to get all that done between now and the close of the window remains to be seen.

One thing is for sure, they’ll have to move more quickly than they have in the window up to now.
