West Ham United supporters in the Transfer Tavern are eager to forget their poor start to this season.
The Hammers were beaten by Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United on the opening day of the new season before losing to Southampton this weekend just gone, and so what better way to forget a defeat than by introducing a new signing? Slaven Bilic has recruited well in the transfer window, with the arrival of Arnautovic and Hernandez being the notable additions. Nonetheless, our landlord believes there is still room for greater refinement.
West Ham United struggled to control proceedings at times against United and the Saints, and while it would be wholly unrealistic to expect the Irons to dominate away from home, it might signal the need for another midfielder.
Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere possesses the ability to dictate the tempo of a game. Despite the understandable and justified concerns regarding his fitness, the Englishman is a gifted player. The 25-year-old has fallen out of favour with the Gunners in recent times, yet his spell at Bournemouth last season testified his ability to stay in pristine condition.
He’s an excellent passer of the ball, and he’s able to influence the game in attacking positions. Additionally, he’s very good at retaining possession, and his fiery temperament ensures he’s always committed to the cause. Given his status within the Arsenal squad, this could be the perfect opportunity to pounce. Our landlord believes that the Irons should do everything in their power to ensure that Wilshere becomes a West Ham player.
