West Ham are busy reviewing free agents and players available on loan with limited funds to spend this summer.
David Moyes knows he must sell to buy but that could be easier said than done with a limited market for players like Felipe Anderson and Manuel Lanzini after a poor season at West Ham.
Claret and Hugh understand that David Moyes and his recruitment team are reviewing free agents and loan options while there is no money from outbound sales.
Agents too are scouring for players that the 57-year-old might consider to bring in fresh faces without breaking the bank.
In January the Hammers bought in Slavia Prague midfielder Tomas Soucek for a £3.75m loan fee later agreeing to pay a transfer fee of £15m to make the deal permanent last week.
Moyes will be looking to repeat on the success of Soucek in finding other talents on a try before you buy basis or at the end of their current contracts.
