West Ham were one of the biggest spenders in the last summer market and made some real impact signings like Felipe Anderson, proving to their board that spending big money does indeed work. Indeed, one of the most upwardly mobile teams outside of the top six, the Hammers look in safe hands under Manuel Pellegrini and, hopefully for them, the money continues to roll in.
Now, the Hammers will be hoping for some more of the same as they look to improve on what could be a top 10 finish this season. However, going forward, the East London outfit almost certainly have aspirations well beyond that. They have to.
With that in mind, here’s a couple of players we feel can help.
After multiple years of experience in the Premier League, Jonjo Shelvey has found himself all but frozen out of the Newcastle squad, having not featured for the Toon since the 0-2 home defeat to Manchester United.
This could be the perfect time for West Ham to come out and say they want his services as it would probably be music to the midfielders ears that he can get some game time.
With only Declan Rice providing some consistency in the midfield for the Hammers it is the perfect time for Shelvey to come in, as it can be felt that with his experience and range of passing he can unlock the attacking play along with Felipe Anderson and Marko Arnautovic.
After being heavily linked with a move to the London stadium in January, West Ham fans will be keen to see the club go back in for the 22-year-old centre forward.
With Felipe Anderson and Michail Antonio being the only players with age really on their side West Ham really need to look for the next set of attacking players they are going to bring in, Gomez would be a great signing for the reason that he is only 22 and would have plenty of time to adjust and become a top class Premier League striker.
The Uruguayan forward has bagged himself 9 goals and 5 assists this season in a struggling Celta Vigo side. If Celta end up going down from the top flight in Spain, you can’t help but feel that the move would be all but done and we will be seeing a new name lead the West Ham attack next season.
