After a superb window signing Carlos Sanchez seems a strange move

After a superb window signing Carlos Sanchez seems a strange move

Much to the delight of the West Ham faithful, David Gold and David Sullivan shelled out £93.47 million on nine players this summer.

After a torrid season for the club which saw the Hammers finish 13th in the table, the owners have given new boss, Manuel Pellegrini a fleet of quality recruits.

In what could turn out to be one of the signings of the summer, Lukasz Fabianski was brought in to take the place shared by Adrian and Joe Hart last season.

Moreover, the free agent signing of Jack Wilshere could give the east London club some real quality in midfield.

Lucas Perez, another former Arsenal man, could also be another astute piece of business. A £4 million fee for a man who created the second most chances in La Liga last season – behind only Lionel Messi – seems set to be a deal that the club can’t really lose out on.

West Ham had a superb transfer window, however, the deadline day deal for Carlos Sanchez seems to be one that just doesn’t make sense.

The Breakdown

Widely remembered for his consistently terrible performances for Aston Villa, the Colombian defender is seemingly always ready to make a mistake.

The 32-year-old does have some technical ability but in truth, he’s not the defensive midfielder the club needed to replace Kouyate.

Thankfully for the club, the midfielder didn’t cost much and therefore if he Sanchez does turn out to be a flop, they won’t have lost much financially.

What do you think of the signing West ham fans?
