Exciting times ahead after Sky Sports claim West Ham are working on four transfers as David Moyes gets down to serious business.
West Ham fans are in expectant mood this summer window and rightly so.
Hammers boss Moyes is too having vowed to ‘go bigger’ in the summer after being unable to sign any of the players he wanted in January.
Moyes has worked a minor miracle at West Ham, pushing for Champions League qualification two seasons running.
His shallow squad meant that proved a bridge too far.
But West Ham – should they come through a two-legged qualifier in August – will have European football again with the Europa Conference League.
Hammers fans want to see Moyes backed in the transfer market, especially given the club requires – in Scot’s own words – a big rebuild this summer.
Six or seven quality new signings are needed. West Ham have one over the line after the impressive capture of £30m defender Nayef Aguerd.
And it seems there are exciting times ahead after Sky Sports claim West Ham are working on four transfers as Moyes gets down to business.
According to a report from Sky Sports overnight, West Ham are now focused on signing four players in particular with deals for Alphonse Areola, Armando Broja, Jesse Lingard and Keane Lewis-Potter next on the agenda.

Sky Sports claims West Ham have made a fresh offer to Lingard’s representatives about a return to east London.
The Hammers are also said to be readying a £30m bid for Chelsea-owned Broja, want to seal the Areola signing soon and have a serious interest in England Under 21 star Lewis-Potter.
“West Ham have made an offer to Jesse Lingard’s representatives over signing the player on a free transfer…” Sky Sports claims.
“David Moyes is looking to improve his squad ahead of a season that will see West Ham combine Premier League improvement with a first Europa Conference League campaign.
“The club continue to work on a deal for PSG goalkeeper Alphonse Areola, who was on loan at the Hammers last season.
“West Ham are set to bid in the region of £30m for Chelsea striker Armando Broja. The 20-year-old has been identified as West Ham’s top striker target this summer…
“They are also interested in Hull City forward Keane Lewis-Potter.”
If West Ham can add that quartet to Aguerd – and sign a quality central midfielder and left-back – the Hammers will have the makings of a very serious side indeed.
Moyes seems very clear on what he needs and who he wants early on in this window.
Let’s hope that translates into West Ham getting most of their business done quickly, efficiently and – where possible – early on in the summer window.
