Insider ExWHUemployee claims West Ham have made offers for quartet including Milan striker Krzysztof Piatek

West Ham United burst into life in the January transfer window on Monday.

Reports from the likes of Sky Sports claim West Ham could be on the verge of landing Czech Republic midfielder Tomas Soucek.

But it seems West Ham are not done there.

That’s if reliable Hammers insider ExWHUemployee is anything to go by.

Speaking on Monday night, the anonymous Twitter and radio personality claimed West Ham have also bid for four other players.

West Ham have made moves for host of stars says insider

ExWHUemployee says West Ham have made offers for AC Milan striker Krzysztof Piatek, Atletico Madrid right back Sime Vrsaljko, Nottingham Forest’s Matt Cash and an unnamed right-back at another English club.

The Hammers are also scouring Europe for right-backs according ExWHUemployee.

“We have also tried to complete a deal for Krzysztof Piatek of AC Milan but other clubs have been in the mix and ahead,” ExWHUemployee said on Twitter.

‘Atletico right-back turned Hammers down’

“Tried to sign Sime Vrsaljko from A(tletico) Madrid but he didn’t want to come. Looking at a number of RB in France, Austria and Belgium after Forest wanted too much for Cash.

“We also made a loan offer for a right back in England too but this was rejected.”

West Ham fans will be delighted to finally see the club taking action.

Forest wanted too much Cash

But many will feel it is too little too late.

Had the Hammers showed this kind of ambition in the summer who knows what they might have achieved after their superb start to the campaign.

Instead David Moyes will be hoping he can get the likes of Soucek over the line and integrate any new signings quickly.

West Ham are only outside the bottom three on goal difference.

Realistically they must win at least five, perhaps six, games to survive.

Next up is Liverpool’s Red Arrows on Wednesday night.
