Co-owner David Gold has stated on Twitter that West Ham United are constantly searching for new additions.

West Ham have already made two signings this summer, with Sofiane Feghouli and Havard Nordtveit both penning deals at the Olympic Stadium.

The Hammers still have areas of the squad that they want to strengthen, though, and Gold insists that the club are doing everything possible to find new players.

West Ham are known to be looking for a striker this summer, and they have already lodged plenty of bids.

Slaven Bilic have reportedly made offers for the likes of Alexandre Lacazette and Callum Wilson, but so far their efforts have proved fruitless.

West Ham are set to back Slaven Bilic with a considerable amount of funds, as they look continue to move forward.

The Hammers finished last season in seventh place in the Premier League table, and they will play in the Europa League next campaign.

West Ham have already expressed a desire to start challenging the top four, with their move to the Olympic Stadium expected to give them the financial power to compete with every other team in England’s top flight.
