West Ham United have signed Joe Hart and Javier Hernandez among other players in the summer transfer window.

Tottenham Hotspur legend Gary Lineker has given his verdict on West Ham United’s transfer business so far this summer on social networking site Twitter.

West Ham have been quite busy in the summer transfer window so far and have made some brilliant signings.

The Hammers have recruited right-back Pablo Zabaleta on a free transfer following the 32-year-old Argentina international’s departure from Premier League rivals Manchester City at the end of the 2016-17 season.

Austria international Marko Arnautovic, who can operate as a forward or as a winger, has arrived from Stoke City, while former Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez has made the switch from German club Bayer Leverkusen.

West Ham have also strengthened the goalkeeping position, bringing in England international Joe Hart on a season-long loan deal from Manchester City.

West Ham endured a disappointing 2016-17 campaign, but the London club could launch a challenge for a top-eight finish in the Premier League next season.
