West Ham United assistant manager Nikola Jurcevic has suggested that the club will dip into the transfer market in the wake of recent injuries.

Gokhan Tore became the latest Hammers player to join the crocked list after suffering a knee injury in the week.

“It’s difficult to say which players will play because Gokhan Tore was injured in training on Monday and he must have a scan," Jurcevic told West Ham’s official website.

"Maybe we will possibly do something in the transfer market because we need players in some positions, because Aaron Cresswell and Manuel Lanzini are injured and cannot play for a long time."

In other transfer news, Gazzetta dello Sport are reporting that Juventus are willing to listen to offers in the region of £16 million for midfielder Roberto Pereyra, with the Hammers being listed as one of the clubs interested in obtaining the Argentine's services.

Mark Noble, meanwhile, has told the club's official website how he believes the transfer business already completed at West Ham has been superb so far.

“We’ve got three very astute signings in Havard, Sofiane and Gokhan. The team spirit was great last season and that is always our main aim, to keep that spirit high. We are excited and from what we can see, everybody else is too," said Noble.
