Parlour explains what he genuinely feels could happen to West Ham

Upton Park

Former Gunner Ray Parlour feels someone could come in and buy West Ham United.

Former Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour told talkSPORT that he holds a genuine belief that someone could come in at West Ham, turning the Hammers into an even bigger club than they already are.

The future for the Hammers is looking bright though there is a real pressure hanging over the head of manager Slaven Bilic to take the club forward over the next year.

“I really believe someone out there might go and buy West Ham and it could become a huge club,” he told talkSPORT.

Positives for West Ham

Any potential new buyer for the club will be looking at what the future represents for West Ham as much as the short term success of the side.

West Ham have got plenty going for them with regards to the future and the general direction the club is heading in.

The move to the Olympic Stadium represent a chance for the club to significantly expand their support base.

If West Ham can start attracting new fans who keep coming back to watch the side, the future generation of the support base is secure.

It’s also a platform which allows the club to look at restructuring or renegotiating financial or corporate agreements to increase the financial clout of the football club.

Europe is important

West Ham have already had a taste of the Europa League and if the club can compete this season, potentially retaining their place in the tournament for next season, it’s another exciting platform.

It’s a platform which would improve the club in terms of attracting players and improving the quality which is already in place.
