Slav watches his target players

West Ham United Visit Seattle on Their US TourSlaven Bilic has confirmed that players involved in the Euro 2016 tournament have been on his list of targets.
He confirmed he had been as much on a scouting mission as he was a pundit for ITV and asked if it had been useful he declared: “Yes, it was useful because you are watching some of the players on your list and it helps, of course.
“It is very rare that clubs are just buying players based on the Euros – they count, but on the other hand the players have a different state of mind because they are so motivated by playing for their countries on the biggest stage.

“It can add ten per cent to your opinion of a player, but you don’t buy them just because of what they did at the Euros.”

Looking to the posibility of new signings he told www.whufc.com : ““We are hoping but we are not desperate. With strikers, we have said from last season that it’s not a secret that we want a top one.
“But we are not so desperate or panic or rush because we have really good strikers. If we could get one top striker, he would add to those we have already.”
