West Ham to Sign Six New Players in Big Transfer Deal – Report



West Ham are looking to make six signings in the summer transfer window, with two centre-backs, a right back, a central midfielder, a winger and a striker on their list.

Julen Lopetegui is looking to overhaul the squad at the London Stadium after taking over from David Moyes.

A new right-back and a new striker are at the top of the list of West Ham’s priorities heading into the transfer window, while other options remain under consideration.

Meanwhile, the club are already working on multiple deals to sign new centre-backs, with Fabricio Bruno already having agreed to personal terms.

Julen Lopetegui targets six new signings in West Ham overhaul

With two new centre-backs and a right-back on the list of priorities this summer, Lopetegui is looking to reshape his defensive unit after a difficult season at the back.

West Ham conceded 74 goals in 38 Premier League games in the just-completed season, leading to calls for the entire defence to be refreshed.

In midfield, Edson Alvarez, Thomas Soucek and James Ward-Prowse were often named as the starting trio, with Lucas Paqueta drifting between spells on the wing or in the middle.

Lopetegui will target a new midfielder to sure up his options, with the uncertainty surrounding Paqueta’s situation also considered, leaving them in the market for a new winger as well.

Lastly, with Michail Antonio and Danny Ings the only out-and-out strikers at the club, a younger and more prolific option will be targeted.

The Hammers have already been watching a host of players as they look to get business done early in the window, with Wes Foderingham having agreed to join alongside Bruno.
