Insider speculates what West Ham board have told Pellegrini about transfers

West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini has already been busy this summer.

The Hammers have signed Pablo Fornals from Villarreal for £24 million (BBC Sport). And Sebastien Haller from Eintracht Frankfurt for £45 million (Sky Sports).

Considering the fact that West Ham have sold Marko Arnautovic and released Andy Carroll, however, Pellegrini surely needs to bring in another centre-forward.

And the addition of a top quality left-back would also not go a miss.

Well respected insider ExWHUemployee suggested that Pellegrini has been told by the club’s board that there is no more money to spend this summer, however:

Now considering the Chilean has already spent £69 million two players, that is hardly surprising.

West Ham are trying to move on fringe players like Pedro Obiang and Jordan Hugill.

But perhaps those sales are needed to just balance the books.

The Hammers are expected to make a real push for the top seven this season. It does seem as though they might still be one or two players short though.

Pellegrini still has a wonderfully strong group of players at his disposal, however.

And West Ham seem to be in a great place to make vast improvements upon last season’s efforts, even if they fail to sign anyone else before deadline day.
