West Ham To Spend Big This Transfer Window With Sights On Europa League Campaign
Talking to the Club’s official website, West Ham United’s joint-chairman David Sullivan said that the East London team will be having a busy transfer window for the coming season.
West Ham will be moving to the Olympic Stadium in the coming season and will be participating in the Europa League.
The Hammers have already secured the signing of Norway international Havard Nordtveit and are also pursuing other high profile players from throughout Europe.
The board want to bolster the squad as the club would have a more conjusted schedule this season, with the team having qualified for the Europa League.
Manager Slaven Bilic has also managed to impress the board with his signings from last year having helped in improving the performances.
“We have done well with our signings and we hope we can sign a few more this summer who will do equally as well or better,” Sullivan added.
“We know that we need a top striker which is the hardest thing to sign. We need a 20-goal-a-season striker and that will cost us £25m or £30m. That is where the bulk of the money goes.
“We also need the occasional long shot which is the cheaper player that may come good. We want to sign more players.
“There might be a few fringe players who we will let go and use that to bring in two or three more players.“We have already signed one player for next season and there will be other signings. I would think that four, five or six players will come in this summer depending on how many go and hopefully we do just as well or even better next season.”
