West Ham fans in the Transfer Tavern are anticipating a busy transfer window.
West Ham supporters will be hoping to improve on their 11th placed finish in the Premier League.
Slaven Bilic has performed well in his capacity as manager of West Ham, and further reinforcements will be essential if the Hammers intend to continue their progression.
A notable rumour that has excited Irons fans in the Tavern has been Olivier Giroud.
The 30-year-old is poised to depart Arsenal, having been utilised as a rotational option last season as opposed to a guaranteed starter.
This quest for consistent first-team football could see the Frenchman move from the North of London to the East of London, and it’s certainly fair to say that the rumours have produced positive reactions among West Ham supporters.
According to the Telegraph, West Ham are prepared to make Giroud the most expensive player in the club’s history.
Bilic’s need for a striker has been apparent since his arrival and Giroud may prove to be the perfect fit.
The French international exhibits a lethal touch, having scored 98 goals in 226 appearances for Arsenal.
Alas, this could be the arrival that addresses West Ham’s striking problems.
Our landlord has decided to take to Twitter to gage the opinions of the Hammers faithful….
How any West Ham fan would not be pleased with Giroud astonishes me. Fantastic player, would thrive in our team, playing first team football
I want only Giroud, @davidgold please make this dream come true, I'm done with Zaba and Olivier

Born in Montpellier and following West Ham I have a soft spot for Giroud, he will be great for us! Great fighter and skillful for his size
