West Ham United boss Manuel Pellegrini has been given a revised transfer budget this summer and fans are not happy.

The Hammers have had an underwhelming first season under Manuel Pellegrini and a likely bottom half finish.

Injuries and a lack of quality in depth have highlighted just how much work still needs to be done improving the team and squad this summer.

West Ham transfer budget bumped up, but it’s not by much

Recent reports claimed that co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold will hand Pellegrini a paltry £25million transfer budget.

Player sales will be needed to generate any further funds.

Now according to well-placed Hammers website Claret & Hugh that budget has been revised.

The amount has gone up. But only by £5million according to C&H.

And that has sparked a furious reaction from some West Ham fans online.

Gomez still the prime target

The report says striker Maxi Gomez remains the prime target with a midfielder and back-up striker the other priorities.

With Gomez likely to cost either £20 million or £40 million Pellegrini is already facing the unenviable task of having to try and shift a lot of deadwood on big wages.

The Hammers have a miserable record of offloading players.

And there is nothing to suggest clubs are going to be queuing up to buy outcasts from a midtable side.

Here are a selection Twitter posts reacting to the reported £30mil budget.
