The Hammers are set to hand boss Slaven Bilic a summer transfer kitty of around £35 million although £12 million of that will immediately be spent on completing deals for Manu Lanzini and Sam Byram.
However should the Irons finish in the Champions League places the war chest could be boosted by a few more millions as the club strides on into its new era.
As reported elsewhere on the site, the vast majority of the available cash will be used for a new striker as the club hunt for a player who can fit their wage policy without breaking through the FFP regulations.
The season’s budget is much the same as last year although a Champions League bonus would see the club probably looking at back up left and right sided defenders.
However, by and large the squad looks strong in most areas thus allowing some elaborate spending in the front position.
Our main source said: ” We are strong in most areas now thanks to a great window last summer . The idea now is to improve as we shuffle the pack from season to season.”
