West Ham United co-chairman David Sullivan has outlined the club’s ambition next season on their official website.

Sullivan has stated that West Ham should start the 2016-17 campaign aiming to win the treble.

According to the Hammers’ co-chairman, Slaven Bilic’s side should be looking to emulate Leicester City’s achievement of last season.

Leicester won the 2015-16 Premier League title to the surprise of all football followers.

Sullivan has also claimed that West Ham should attempt to win the FA Cup and Capital One Cup, as well as progress as far as possible in the Europa League.

“We all saw what Leicester did last season and we start the campaign with the aim of winning the Premier League,” Sullivan wrote on West Ham’s official website.

“Anyone who says it can't be done only has to look at what Leicester achieved and it can be done. It is unlikely but that has to be our aim, along with the FA Cup and Capital One Cup.

“We have three trophies and we want to win all of them. We are also in Europe and we want to do well in that as well.”

Sullivan’s ambitions are bold, and it is very unlikely that West Ham would be able to win the Premier League title next season.

In fact, the chances are that the London outfit may not even end up in the top six during the 2016-17 campaign.

As far as winning the FA Cup and the Capital One Cup is concerned, Bilic’s side can do so as they are knockout competitions.

West Ham are not guaranteed a place in the group stage of the 2016-17 Europa League, and they are unlikely to win the competition due to the fierce competition.
