West Ham were poor throughout last season, failing to shine in their new stadium and slumping to a whole host of poor defeats along the way under Slaven Bilic.
The Londoners will be hoping this season they can turn things around a bit, and they will be hoping for a good end to the summer in the transfer window as they look to add some quality to their ranks.
The Hammers fans here in the Tavern have been getting pretty excited about new signings Javier Hernandez and Marko Arnautovic, and they are looking forward to seeing them in action in two weeks time.
One player our landlord thinks could add even more spark for the Hammers is current Wolves attacking winger Helder Costa, who was a revelation following what was a loan and then big money move to the Championship last term.
Costa might not be easy to get hold of having only moved here last year, but he has all the qualities which make him ideal for a top Premier League player. His pace, ability to play either wing, and also his knack of creating and scoring goals out of nothing, mark him out as a tremendous wide player in any league.
Wolves fans will no doubt be hoping he can fire them to the Premier League, but just like most players during this transfer window, he will have a price.
His agent is well renowned for moving his players on at the drop of a hat, something the Hammers will be well aware of. The thought of Costa linking with Hernandez and Arnautovic is a thrilling prospect for West Ham fans to look forward to if a move was made.
Hammers fans, what do you think? Would you take Costa? Let us know!
