Hammers boss Slaven Bilic is busy reshaping his squad ahead of what promises to be an enthralling new Premier League season.

The club moves to the 60,000 seater Olympic Stadium later this month and also had Europa League football to look forward to.

There are also raised expectations following a fine season and seventh place finish last year where the Hammers fell just five points short of Champions League football.

Bilic knows he must have strength in depth

As such Bilic knows he must have a squad to compete domestically and abroad and has already added Norwegian Havard Nordtveit and Algerian Sofiane Feghouli on free transfers.

Turkish winger Gokhan Tore is expected to arrive on loan from Besiktas early next week, as confirmed by Jack Sullivan, the son of co-owner David, on Twitter.

Meanwhile the club is being linked with moves for AC Milan striker Carlos Bacca and Manchester United youngster Ashley Fletcher along with a host of other names from across the globe as the transfer market grinds up a gear.

Clearing the decks for fresh blood

Players such as James Tomkins, Alex Song, Emmanuel Emenike and Victor Moses have all departed and speculation abounds that Diafra Sakho and Enner Valencia will be the next to leave the East London club.

It is expected the club will use the Europa League to give many of their young players such as Reece Oxford, Reece Burke, Martin Samuelsen and the more experienced Pedro Obiang much needed game time.
