West Ham need to maintain their consistency if they consider themselves to have any chance of obtaining seventh place this season.
With the Hammers right in the mix with several other teams, there hasn’t been a season where so many sides have all been challenging for Europe.
Manuel Pellegrini has put together a good group of players who he must believe have the capabilities to finish higher than just mid-table, he wants them to strive for more.
There is still a chance of that this season but, with the ability to strengthen over the summer once more, West Ham could be a far stronger side should Pellegrini again get the players he desires.
A right-back is cropping up to be a position of need for the Hammers and Lyon’s Kenny Tete could be the man to fill that role for them.
Tete, (who is valued at £7.2 million on Transfermarkt) has found regular game-time hard to come by this season, something that could change with a move to the Premier League and to West Ham.
With 14 appearances this season, the 23-year-old has been replaced at right-back and is used on a rotation basis.
Whether he is used at right-back, centre-back or left-back where he can also play is up to Manuel Pellegrini’s choosing but Kenny Tete could do a stern job for West Ham in a number of different roles.
The former Holland international has shown his quality by being capped by his country an impressive 12 times and with regular appearances for West Ham, a recall could be in-line.
If game time is what he is after, West Ham are a club looking to improve and he could be part of how they would do it.
