West Ham United boss David Moyes spoke to reporters yesterday and suggested that he wants to take the club in a different direction as far as transfers are concerned, as quoted by Claret and Hugh.
The Hammers have made a fine start to their 2020/21 Premier League campaign.
We are currently sitting in 10th spot in the table. A win today against Burnley could see us jump inside the top seven if results elsewhere go our way.
David Moyes has certainly changed the culture at the London Stadium in what has been a very short period of time.
The Scot deserves great credit for that. We now seem like a proper professional outfit on the pitch. The West Ham players have a never-say-die attitude and we are no longer an easy touch.
West Ham boss David Moyes wants to change transfer approach
The Hammers manager told reporters how the next step in the club’s evolution will be to get it right when it comes to transfers, as quoted by Claret and Hugh:
“I think with recruitment, I want to go in a completely different direction, I want to sign, and I’m not saying that won’t happen in this window, but the truth is, we’ve got something else we’d like it to look like. But we are trying our best to make sure we turn a corner.”
In fairness to David Moyes, he has made some superb signings for West Ham.
Jarrod Bowen, Tomas Soucek and Vladimir Coufal have all been huge hits at the London Stadium.
The Scot’s next move in the transfer market will be absolutely vital, however. In fact, it could end up defining his tenure at West Ham.
The Hammers desperately need to sign a new centre-forward. We have been linked with a plethora of names already. If Moyes gets it right, we could really push on for a top seven finish this season.
Let’s just hope that the board are prepared to sufficiently back the West Ham boss in the transfer market. We all know that that is far from guaranteed, however.
