Premier League

Surely these 2 players won’t be in Slaven Bilic’s first match-day squad next season

West Ham supporters chatting to the barman here in the Transfer Tavern are calling for Slaven Bilic to get a move on in the transfer window.

The Hammers had one of the worst defensive records in the Premier League last season shipping 64 goals, only worsened by four teams.

So far the Croat has called upon longstanding Manchester City right-back Pablo Zabaleta to shore up his backline, but Hammers fans are eagerly anticipating more arrivals.

In terms of attacking options, West Ham simply cannot rely on Andy Carroll or Diafra Sakho.

Both strikers have had long lay-offs in the past year and the Hammers are in desperate need for reinforcements.

Former Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez has been linked with a move to the London Stadium and the club are in talks with his current side Bayer Leverkusen.

After an early season slump, West Ham recovered to claim 11th in the Premier League.

Bilic will be keen for a positive start, which means he needs to cut loose those holding his team back.

And these TWO players surely won’t be in his first match day squad...
