The Hammers were one of the first to do business this summer with the shrewd free transfer signing of experienced defender Pablo Zabaleta from Manchester City, solving their problem right back position.
But nearly two months passed since his arrival with no further recruits and the club's fans were not happy.
The likes of Keita Balde Diao and Jack Wilshere are other names being heavily linked with the London Stadium.
And that has got supporters excited again after last year's transfer failings.

That poor recruitment and a plethora of problems during the club's first season at the Olympic Stadium fostered resentment from fans towards the likes of Brady and co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold.
But tensions appear to be easing off the back of the board proving they are listening to supporters concerns.
One question had been lingering in the minds of West Ham fans recently over when they would be receiving their season tickets after 52,000 signed up for a second consecutive campaign - second only to Manchester United.
With the start of the season just over a week away some supporters were concerned.
But Brady has taken to Twitter to allay any fears and reveal the plans in place to get them out to the Hammers faithful.
"All 52,000 season tickets being posted out next Tuesday for arrival next Friday COYI," Brady said on Twitter.

The club's official website then later clarified that all season ticket holders will be issued new cards to replace existing ones.
Supporters need not panic, though, as the Hammers don't play a home game until September 11th due to the London Stadium being used for athletics.
