It was a big summer for West Ham heading into this season after they forked out on the likes of Felipe Anderson and Andriy Yarmolenko.
And the east London club could be about to follow that theme again once the transfer window reopens after the end of the current campaign.
Claretandhugh reports Manuel Pellegrini is keen on reinforcements, though players will need to be sold to fund a potential spending spree with Arthur Masuaku, Pedro Obiang, Carlos Sanchez, Javier Hernandez and Lucas Perez all said to be names the West Ham manager could be open to letting go.
Most of the above, by no means, are terrible footballers. But if getting rid of them is what it takes for Pellegrini to be able to shape this West Ham squad further in his image, then it has to be done.
After a dreadful start to the season, the Chilean has gone on to show that he could be onto something special with his West Ham side managing to pick up some big results against the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal while playing a more entertaining brand of football along the way.
Considering that, with players he feels are more suited to what he wants to see on the pitch, West Ham could be on course to reaching that next level.
Ultimately, a summer clear-out might just be what the club needs to help give Pellegrini the best London Stadium team yet.
