Hammers fans in the Transfer Tavern are concerned about their side’s potential defensive frailties this season.
Slaven Bilic’s side have finally been making movements in the transfer market. West Ham have bolstered their attack with the signing of Marko Arnautovic and the imminent arrival of Javier Hernandez.
Hernandez is expected to complete his move to the East London side after the Hammers agreed terms with Bayer Leverkusen for the former Man United striker.
With ‘Chicharito’ and Arnautovic, Bilic appears to be getting it right at the top end of the pitch.
However, the Croat still needs to address his side’s poor defensive record. The Hammers shipped a staggering 64 goals last season and have only added Pablo Zabaleta to their back-four.
Whether Bilic does attend to the defence remains to be seen. But after snapping up Arnautovic, surely there’s no place for these TWO this season…
