West Ham are expected to be active in the summer transfer window.
After David Sullivan confirmed to West Ham United’s official site that Slaven Bilic has submitted bids for five players yesterday, we take a look at the quintet of players who the Hammers could be after.
West Ham have already had a bid turned down for Lyon striker Lacazette, but he is known to be on Bilic’s wishlist.
The Hammers are yet to sign a striker, which they are desperate to do this summer, and it would not be too much of a surprise if West Ham did return to attempt to sign Lacazette.
Reports in the Spanish press have suggested that West Ham want to sign Juan Mata from Manchester United.
Mata’s future at Old Trafford is up in the air following the appointment of Jose Mourinho, and his arrival at the Olympic Stadium would really outline Bilic’s side’s ambition.
Gregory Van Der Wiel
West Ham’s options down the right-hand side of their defence could be stronger, and Van Der Wiel looks to be a potential target.
The PSG defender has fallen out of favour at the Ligue 1 side and could be available this summer.
AC Milan striker Carlos Bacca is another striker who has been heavily linked with West Ham.
The front man is currently at the Copa America, and is unlikely to decide on his future until he returns from the international tournament.
The young Croatian reportedly features highly in West Ham’s plans, and rumours have emerged that Bilic has made a £10 million bid for his compatriot.
Coric has impressed as Dinamo Zagreb, and it seems only a matter of time before he makes a step up to a bigger club.
