West Ham will face a number of financial hurdles to fund these summer signings of Pablo Fornals and Sebastien Haller.
The departures of Adrian, Andy Carroll and Samir Nasri, Edmilson Fernandes and Lucas Perez in June have saved around £300,000 per week off West Ham’s wage bill or £15.6m annually.
The Hammers net spend excluding possible add-ons has hit £32.5m following the signing of record signing Sébastien Haller today.
Dutch paper Telegraaf have reported on how FC Utrecht are set to benefit from Sebestian Haller move to West Ham.
Manuel Pellegrini’s men are set to wear the new third kit for the first time in today’s Premier League Asia Trophy semi-final against Manchester City in China.
West Ham will be broadcast live in the UK by Sky Sports Football and Sky Sports Main Event, with coverage starting at 1.15pm UK time and kick-off at 1.30pm. The Hammers will tackle Premier League title holders Manchester City in the semi-finals at Nanjing Olympic Sports Centre Stadium today, following the tournament opener between Newcastle United and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

While Sebastien Haller has yet to put pen to paper and sign his West Ham contract , I will put my neck on the line this evening by suggesting he will sign within the next twenty fours and be announced as the record club signing tomorrow.
