With the summer transfer window open and ready for business, West Ham are expected to be one of the big players in the market.
The Hammers need to sell, sell, sell and buy, buy, buy in a long-term bid to achieve the promised land of European football, with manager Manuel Pellegrini ambitious the club can reach this aim within the next few years, and bringing in quality players will be a good step forward in the right direction.
West Ham have so far this summer been linked with names that will more than improve their starting XI, and now according to Claret and Hugh, the east London side are interested in Liverpool attacker Xherdan Shaqiri, who is likely to leave the Merseyside club this summer.
Although the Swiss international has dropped off the boil in the second half of the season for the Reds, there is no question that Shaqiri would be a major coup for the Hammers, and that Pellegrini must do all he can to sign the former Bayern Munich man.
Able to play on either wing and behind the striker, the 27-year-old forward will be a solid option for the Hammers next season if the club decides to go in for Shaqiri, adding a lethal option in the final third and making West Ham’s attack a lot more scary on paper.
With Liverpool willing to sell, West Ham must go all in for Shaqiri this summer, who will add more goals to the attack and bring an added layer of flair and entertainment to the club.
West Ham fans, would Shaqiri be a good signing? Let us know!
