Report’s hugely exciting West Ham transfer spree claim as sights settle on trio next for David Moyes in the summer window.
West Ham fans had approached the summer transfer window in expectant mood but highly sceptical.
Moyes has worked a minor miracle at West Ham, pushing for Champions League qualification two seasons running.
Hammers fans want to see the Scot backed in the transfer market, especially given the club requires – in Moyes’s own words – a big rebuild this summer.
With a host of players departing or not in Moyes’ plans, West Ham need at least six or seven quality new signings.
Fans have questioned whether that will be forthcoming, even after departing captain Mark Noble publicly stated West Ham were already three players short last season before the raft of departures.
It has been an encouraging start to the summer window with some dead wood off the books and brilliant defender Nayef Aguerd arriving in a £30m deal this week.
Now a new report from The Athletic has made a hugely exciting West Ham transfer spree claim as sights settle on a trio of stars next for Moyes.
The Athletic’s West Ham reporter Roshane Thomas claims the Aguerd signing is the start of a Hammers transfer spree.
And the report states that Moyes’ sights are settled on getting deals done for Alphonse Areola, Armando Broja and Keane Lewis-Potter next.
The report states that West Ham are ‘close to finalising’ a permanent move for France goalkeeper Areola in what will be the second signing of the smmer.
Chelsea striker Broja and Hull City attacker Lewis-Potter – both long linked with moves to West Ham – are named as Moyes’ next prime targets after Areola.
A new left-back is also reportedly high on the Scot’s agenda.
“Aguerd’s £30m arrival the start of West Ham spree – Areola next with Broja on wanted list,” The Athletic reports.
“West Ham intend to have a strong window and there can be plenty of optimism about Aguerd’s arrival.
“A forward and left-back remains a priority as Moyes bids to build on a seventh-place finish and spot in the last four of the Europa League.
“It is important West Ham show they are capable of challenging for a European position once more — that will be determined by other incomings this summer.”
Let’s hope for exciting times ahead.
