Sir Trevor Brooking hopes this happens during West Ham United's summer transfer window

West Ham United have enjoyed an excellent season so far, and currently sit in fifth place in the Premier League table.

Sir Trevor Brooking has told the Daily Mirror that he hopes Slaven Bilic is given funds to invest in his West Ham United squad during the summer transfer window.

The Hammers have put together a wonderful season in Bilic’s first campaign in charge at Upton Park.

Not only are the London club competing for a top four spot in the Premier League, but they also have made it through to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

West Ham have proven their ability to compete with the very best in the country, but Brooking wants to see Bilic given the funds required to enhance his squad even further.

“Slaven’s produced a good, technical side. Hopefully the board will give him the support in the summer to get three or four players,” he said. “That could it make it quite exciting at the new stadium.”

West Ham are expected to invest heavily in the summer, as they prepare for life in the Olympic Stadium.

The Hammers are expecting to have a sizeable amount more supporters watching them next term, with season ticket sales going very well.

According to Sky Sports, West Ham have set aside £40 million for Bilic to find a new striker - as he looks to make his side more of a threat.

The Hammers’ board have made no secret of their desire to become a regular challenger for the top four spots in the Premier League, and it seems that the future is very bright at the London club.
