Hot on the heels of the club's most recent signing, news is emerging from all over the place of yet more signings, possibly as many as FOUR! Of course the head line grabber is Lucas Paqueta.
As we publish this article, the Paqueta deal is pretty much done and dusted, whilst deals for Adnan Januzaj, Conor Gallagher and Armando Broja could be in the pipeline as well.
Thilo Kehrer, Emerson Palmieri have already signed up in the last week and Hans Vanaken looks set to join them in addition! As a result Hammers look far better equipped to get the season underway now, the three Premier League defeats can become a thing of the past if the new players are able to bed in quickly.
Fans may well ask why it has taken up until now for the club to become so actively involved in transfers, they are right to do so, but the reality is that despite their view Hammers fans think the club is way bigger than it actually is.
The 'purchase' pecking order dictates that certain clubs have 'first dibs' at all the best talent, they are then followed by the best of the rest, Hmmers are only just approaching the best of the rest level, their progress blighted by the likes of Newcastle, Everton and Forest, the aforementioned club's excesses are setting a dangerous 'spend precursor' that could seriously impact the market.
However, whichever way you look at it the club have spent big during this window and while it would have been preferable for all the new signings to have been in place a couple of weeks ago they are at least in situ.
Some might say it is too little to late, while others might say "well done". - Ed
