West Ham United boss David Moyes has revealed the club have got a ‘proper bid in’ for an unnamed player.
The Hammers are in desperate need of new recruits to help stave off the threat of relegation.
West Ham are only outside the bottom three on goal difference going into Wednesday’s game against Liverpool.
The situation has become even more acute after West Ham’s accounts revealed retaining their Premier League status this season was a ‘necessity’ (BBC).
So the pressure is on Moyes and his players.
Big week for West Ham on and off the pitch
Darren Randolph is the only arrival of the January window so far.
But the Scot confirmed the Hammers are expected to add Czech Republic midfield star to their ranks this week (whufc.com).
And speaking in his pre-Liverpool press conference, Moyes also revealed West Ham have what he called a ‘proper bid’ in for another unnamed player.
Presumably the West Ham boss means a bid to sign a player on a permanent basis rather than on loan.
He did however admit he was not sure whether the club will pull it off.
Moyes makes transfer admission
“We’ve got a proper bid in for another player at the moment,” Moyes told the press, as reported on whufc.com.
“Whether we get him I couldn’t guarantee at the moment.”
That will be music to the ears of West Ham fans who have been calling on the club to do more to improve the squad.
Who the unnamed player is, one can only guess.
But West Ham have been linked with a host of players from across Europe over the last few days.
Moyes revelation fits with insider’s claim
Last night reliable insider ExWHUemployee claimed West Ham had made moves for a quartet of players.

In an ideal world West Ham need a new right-back and another striker to share the burden with record signing Sebastien Haller.
The Frenchman has struggled as a lone forward.
He has also been an ever-present in the league bar one game and could do with coming out of the side before his confidence is shattered completely.
West Ham have until Friday night to get any more deals over the line.
