West Ham fans in the Transfer Tavern are optimistic for the future after the club finally announced their new manager.
Ex-Manchester City manager, Manuel Pellegrini, was finally appointed as the new West Ham manager after David Moyes left the club despite guiding the Hammers to safety in the Premier League. The Chilean lifted the Premier League title during his time with the Citizens and also had spells in charge of Villareal and European champions Real Madrid.
The 64-year-old has plenty of business to attend to now his appointment has been made official. A new number one is definitely high on his agenda and strengthening their forward line should also be made a priority. The Hammers also need a new midfield general to partner Mark Noble.
Instead of raiding Manchester City or Real Madrid, Pellegrini should look to Villarreal and attempt to poach promising midfielder – Manu Trigueros. The 26-year-old has gone from strength to strength for the Yellow Submarine which has seen his market value rise to £18m according to Transfermarkt. The Spaniard has been linked with Chelsea in the past, and West Ham should look to bring him to the Premier League.
Trigueros is the perfect partner for Noble in the engine room at the London Stadium. Compared to the Englishman, he has played more key passes, created more chances and retained a higher pass success rate according to Squawka. As well as bettering Noble’s offensive stats, Trigueros has also won more tackles.
The chance to work under Pellegrini and play in the Premier League could tempt him into a move.
