The problems at West Ham United continue to mount and, for the Irons propping up the bar in the Transfer Tavern, things really need to change at the London Stadium.
While genuine fears over the prospect of suffering relegation during the maiden campaign at their new home have somewhat subsided of late, there’s little doubting it has otherwise been a nightmare season thus far.
One of the major sewing motifs of the past few months has been the fact that the Hammers’ summer signings have continually failed to impress in claret and blue, meaning the January transfer market takes on an added importance.
Not only do top brass in Stratford need to prove they can be trusted to deliver marked improvements on what Slaven Bilic currently has at his disposal to change the view of the fans in the long-term, they also need to do it quickly to absolutely ensure they aren’t dragged back into the scrap to stay up.
With that in mind, perhaps a good avenue to explore would be the African Cup of Nations.
The biggest names in Africa go head-to-head this month in the continent’s biggest tournament and surely all this action will throw up the odd hidden gem.
Considering all of this, here are THREE AFCON stars Bilic should be casting keen eyes over.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
