Slaven Bilic shares his major concern after agents offer potential signings to West Ham

Slaven Bilic

Slaven Bilic has discussed West Ham's progress on and off the pitch.

West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic has told The Sun that he is receiving calls from agents about players joining the club this summer.

The Hammers have enjoyed a stunning first season under Bilic, as even after the 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace, they remain in the hunt for a Champions League place, sitting just three points off the top four.

Even if a Champions League place is out of the question, Europa League qualification beckons for Bilic and co, making them an attractive proposition for possible signings this summer.

Couple that with the imminent move from Upton Park to the Olympic Stadium, and West Ham are clearly a team who are really moving in the right direction.

Now, West Ham boss Bilic has told The Sun that he has had calls from a number of agents offer potential signings to the Hammers ahead of this summer's transfer window, with big-name players possibly keen having seen Dimitri Payet impress so much this season.

However, Bilic suggested that he is concerned that West Ham could be progressing a little too fast, given that the players on offer were not on the club's list last summer, and were in fact deemed to be a level above the club's expectations just a year ago.

"I have had so many calls from agents and from players who are offering themselves through the agents," said Bilic. "A year ago it was simply not possible. They were not on our list, they were on the list above us. Now this is happening. But in my honest opinion, it’s all happening a little bit too fast. We can’t stop it unless we play bad, which you don’t want of course," he added.
