West Ham are being linked with three new names for their big summer transfer rebuild with the window just over six weeks away.

The summer window opens on June 9th and West Ham look set to be one of the busiest clubs in the Premier League.

Expectations are high, not only among West Ham fans but manager David Moyes too.

After a disappointing January during which West Ham failed to sign a single player, the Scot vowed he would rather ‘save his money and go big’ in the summer to get the players he actually wants.

Moyes himself has stated will be a big rebuild this summer (The Evening Standard).

That has piled the pressure on David Sullivan, David Gold and new Czech billionaire co-owner Daniel Kretinsky.

But it seems the identification of potential signings is well underway if reports over the weekend are to be believed.

West Ham scouts have allegedly been making regular checks on Bernard during an impressive loan spell at Hull City ahead of a potential deal.

Reports claim Moyes sees huge potential in Bernard and whilst Manchester United rate him highly, West Ham think they can offer a realistic route to first-team football.

Another new name being linked with a move to West Ham this weekend is French midfield powerhouse Geoffrey Kondogbia.

The likes of The Hard Tackle and Claret and Hugh have highlighted a report from Spain claiming West Ham are rivalling Manchester City for the Atletico Madrid man.

It is claimed that West Ham and Manchester City are both exploring the possibility of getting the defensive midfielder on board with the likes of Mark Noble and Fernandinho leaving the respective clubs this summer.

Another new name allegedly in West Ham’s sights this summer is goalkeeper Nick Pope.

The Daily Mail claim Moyes is keeping close tabs on Pope, whose man of the match performance denied West Ham a win over Burnley on Sunday.

West Ham have Alphonse Areola on loan from PSG and reports claim making that permanent would cost just £11m.

But The Daily Mail states that Moyes is still undecided over Areola and is keeping his options open.
