West Ham have made some behind the scenes bids for players this month according to David Moyes.
The Hammers are currently flying high sitting inside the Champions League places.
We’ve won three Premier League games on the bounce and four in all competitions.
The feel-good factor emanating from the London Stadium is at an all-time high and if we manage to beat Leeds and Manchester United, even the most negative of West Ham fans will surely believe that something special could happen this season.
In order to keep up our fine form, however, and the terrific start we’ve made to the season, Moyes absolutely must bolster his ranks at the London Stadium in the January transfer window.
The Hammers’ bench against Norwich City on Wednesday night was incredibly weak and it highlighted the need for two or three top-class signings.
It seems as though Moyes is trying his utmost to make that happen…
West Ham bids have been made Moyes says
The Scot is adamant that he is trying everything that he can to make the Hammers squad strong.
According to the Evening Standard, West Ham’s priorities this month are to sign a striker and a centre-back.
And Moyes told reporters how offers have already been submitted behind the scenes by West Ham, as quoted by the Evening Standard:
“I think sometimes you need things to come, [they] take a bit of time to come to fruition. We’re asking about players and other clubs that are trying to get them are asking about players and it is taking a bit of time for things, the domino affect to really happen. We’ve made some offers behind the scenes for players, we’ve tried to look at situations so it’s not as if we’re not doing it at the moment.”
Moyes and the West Ham owners absolutely cannot allow this transfer window to pass without strengthening.
The Hammers have a real opportunity to upset the status quo this season and finish inside the top four. Chances like that won’t come around very often what with the incredible financial muscle of at least six or seven teams in the Premier League.
This could be our year. And finishing inside the top four may well be enough to keep Declan Rice at the London Stadium for a little while longer.
If that isn’t enough of an incentive for the owners and manager to spend then I don’t know what is.
If Moyes can bring in a quality striker and a top-class, left-footed centre-back, then West Ham will have every chance of cracking the top four come May.
If we fail to strengthen, however, our small, stretched squad may not have enough to get over the line.
