West Ham chairman David Sullivan has been speaking to the official website about transfer news in the light of the recent Europa league loss and the injuries.
“Thursday’s performance and the injuries suffered by Aaron Cresswell, Manuel Lanzini and Gokhan Tore have only increased our eagerness to get deals done. There has been some good news with Manu, who we hope will only miss three Premier League fixtures.” Sullivan told WHUFC.com
“We are very close to bringing in a very promising striker who has scored goals regularly in his career in competitive leagues. He will need time to settle, like every new player, but we are confident he will add a lot to the squad.”
“We are also talking to another Premier League club about a top-class international forward, but the discussions over financial terms still have some way to go.”
“With Aaron unfortunately out for a few weeks, we have lodged bids in for a left-back, one of which was an £8m bid which was turned down on Thursday. We will now decide whether or not we increase that bid. Watch this space.”
