West Ham United are planning a significant squad overhaul this summer, targeting up to eight new signings, according to The Guardian.

The newspaper suggests a focus on bolstering the homegrown player quota, with an emphasis on scouring the Championship. Coventry City’s attacking midfielder Callum O’Hare has emerged as a potential target.

The 25-year-old has enjoyed a productive season following his return from a cruciate ligament injury. His 10 goals and 4 assists have impressed West Ham, who are reportedly drawn to the data-driven analysis of his performances. With his contract expiring this summer, O’Hare seems likely to leave Coventry, making him a viable option for the Hammers.

The potential influx of eight new signings reflects the anticipated significant changes at West Ham. David Moyes is expected to depart, ushering in a new era under a different manager. Technical director Tim Steidten is poised to orchestrate this substantial squad overhaul.

While Julen Lopetegui remains a candidate for the vacant managerial position, reports also suggest Hansi Flick could also be in contention. The new manager’s playing style will likely determine how O’Hare is integrated into the squad.

West Ham has seen a recent exodus of attacking talent, with departures like Gianluca Scamacca, Pablo Fornals, and Said Benrahma going unfilled. O’Hare’s arrival would offer some attacking support, but he might not be a direct replacement for a player like Lucas Paqueta, who is likely to end up at Manchester City.

The Hammers are also looking to acquire wide players from abroad, hinting at a potentially frenetic summer transfer window. West Ham fans can expect a vastly different squad come next season
