The Hammers net spend excluding possible add-ons, agent fees or net deductions such as FIFA solidarity payments has hit £26.25m following yesterday’s sale of Pedro Obiang.
The summer has already seen the departures of Edimilson Fernandes £6.75m Lucas Perez £2m Sam Byram £750,000 and Marko Arnautovic £22.5m so the sale of Obiang for £6.25m takes that total to £38.25m
Pablo Fornals is reported to have cost £24m in instalments while Sebastian Haller is said to have cost £40.5m over the first 18 months meaning a total outlay of £64.5m.
That leaves the current West Ham net spend around previous averages with the chances of more big-money signing very unlikely unless further players are sold.
Jordan Hugill £3m and Javier Hernandez £8m are still possible candidates to raise more funds before the transfer window is over but loans, free agents and cheap transfers are remain late possibilities as Manuel Pellegrini puts the final touches to his 2019/2020 Premier League squad.
