Bilic, though, is confident that the deal will go through, but the West Ham manager has admitted that if it does not, then the London club will not make a move for another defensive midfielder.
“It’s hard to be objective,” Bilic told The Guardian regarding the signing of Carvalho. “But I am quite confident.”
“It’s too late for anything else, so no,” added Bilic when asked if West Ham could sign anyone else if Carvalho does not arrive. “That’s it. But I hope we are going to get him.”
According to The Guardian, West Ham are interested in signing Didier Ibrahim Ndong from Sunderland in the summer transfer window.
Bilic’s comments seem to suggest that West Ham will not make a move for Ndong if the London club fails to sign Carvalho.
