The transfer window has barely been open a week and already some West Ham United fans are not happy.

Expectations are high this summer.

Co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold have been talking up their grand plan with Manuel Pellegrini at the helm, read the full story here.

More money, more problems

The duo backed Pellegrini with £100million for 10 new signings last summer.

And the Chilean is reportedly looking to sign another six before next season.

Top of the agenda is reshaping West Ham’s striker options.

Andy Carroll will leave the club when his contract expires next month.

West Ham’s highest ever earner Javier Hernandez and fellow forward Lucas Perez are also expected to leave.

Those three departures alone would free up a staggering £310,000 per week in wages.

Maxi-mum disappointment

Hammers fans had been excited by links to Celta Vigo star Maxi Gomez.

The talented 22-year-old Uruguayan was seen as exactly the kind of statement signing West Ham should be making and building a team around to grow over the coming seasons.

Those same fans have been left disappointed by new reports claiming any hopes of that deal are all but dead following interest from bigger clubs.

Instead the Hammers are being linked with Salomon Rondon and Aleksandar Mitrovic.

Some fans not impressed by strike duo links

And neither have particularly caught the imagination of the club’s supporters.

In fact many feel the story of the failed Gomez pursuit is an all too familiar one.

Striker groundhog day

The Hammers have been here before after all. For Gomez see Michy Batshuayi, Alexandre Lacazette and Carlos Bacca.

West Ham supporters feel both Rondon and Mitrovic lack the pace their club needs to truly improve.

And they have been making their feelings known on Twitter.

Here are a selection of comments on the links to Rondon and Mitrovic.
