Slaven Bilic gives West Ham transfer update ahead of deadline day

Slaven Bilic still wants more signings for West Ham.

West Ham United boss Slaven Bilic has told Sky Sports that he is still looking to purchase new players as we draw ever closer to deadline day.

The Hammers bounced back from their embarrassing 4-3 defeat to Bournemouth last weekend by stunning everybody with a 3-0 victory away at Liverpool.

Goals from Manuel Lanzini, Mark Noble and Diafra Sakho handed West Ham a convincing victory at Anfield, even despite Mark Noble's red card.

The win felt somewhat reminiscent of West Ham's display on the opening day of the season, where they convincingly beat Arsenal 2-0 despite few given them a chance.

Even after today's victory, West Ham still need new signings ahead of Tuesday's transfer deadline, with at least one attacking player still required.

Injuries to Andy Carroll, Enner Valencia and Mauro Zarate have left Bilic with few options in attack, and a solution is needed before the transfer window slams shut.

Speaking to Sky Sports following the win over Liverpool, Bilic admitted that he still feels West Ham lack two or three players - and says the club must bring in at least one player before the deadline.

"We are lacking two or three players," said Bilic. "I know we are trying, and we have to get something. We wanted and we still want to buy something that is going to help us, not just the numbers. We are going to try, we still have two days, but we aren't going to buy just to buy," he added.
