With one game of the Premier League season left to play, it’s soon time for one of the most exciting periods of the footballing calendar, the summer transfer window.
And this year’s edition of the transfer bonanza is expected to be a big one, with teams all over the country expected to overhaul their squads and make those signings that will take them to the next level, and for West Ham, this summer is a big one.
Manuel Pellegrini has a clear goal of wanting to get the Hammers into contention for the top-six, and he’s done well in his first season in east London, but it is clear that the Chilean manager needs more if he is to take West Ham further in the league, and reports are indicating the club are looking down a division for talent.
According to the Daily Mail, the Hammers are interested in Blackburn Rovers star Bradley Dack, who has built a reputation for himself in the lower divisions as one of the best goal-scoring midfielders in the country with 15 goals in the Championship this season alone.
The 25-year-old would add goals to West Ham given his impressive record in the Championship and League One, but if the Hammers are to sign one player from the lower English divisions this summer, Dack isn’t the answer.
Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish is a name that has long been linked with a move to the Premier League, with the 23-year-old continuing to star for the historic Birmingham-based club since their relegation from the top-flight, and West Ham should be making the playmaker a top target this summer.
The Hammers have been linked with Grealish in the past via the Mirror, and the Villa star is more than ready for a return to the Premier League after impressing with his boyhood club for some time.
Signing Grealish would be a big sign of intent from the Hammers and would add much-needed creativity to the side that has been sorely missed with Manuel Lanzini disappointing this season.
West Ham fans, would Grealish be a better signing than Dack? Let us know!
