West Ham United are aiming for a strong start to the summer transfer window, targeting three signings before new manager Julen Lopetegui officially begins on July 1st, according to The Sun.

Technical Director Tim Steidten is leading the charge, aiming to avoid a repeat of last summer’s slow transfer activity under David Moyes.
Also remember Declan Rice’s potential transfer saga and the late reinforcements under Moyes, highlights the desire for a more proactive approach.

West Ham are reportedly close to finalising the transfer of Brazilian defender Fabricio Bruno from Flamengo for an initial £12.5 million.

Steidten is actively pursuing further signings, no doubt using the budget wisely.

Winger Wesley Gassova is an option, but his current valuation is deemed too high.
Other reported targets include defenders Max Kilman (Wolves), Jacob Greaves (Hull City), and midfielder Callum O’Hare

The apparent focus on defensive reinforcements reflects a weakness exposed during Moyes’ tenure. Attacking reinforcements are also a priority, potentially influenced by Lopetegui’s preferred style of play.

With Bruno’s imminent arrival, West Ham appear to be moving swiftly under Steidten’s leadership.
Completing additional deals before Lopetegui arrives would put the team in a stronger position for the upcoming season.

So, West Ham’s proactive approach to the transfer window signifies a clear desire to support Lopetegui from the outset. Whether they can secure their targets before the end of June remains to be seen, but the early activity is a positive sign

    I felt it was the right time to part company with Moyes, however it does amuse me how every positive transfer News of the last 12 months or so is down to Steidten whilst Moyes carries the can for anything that went wrong.

      Moyes desperately needs to press the update button as he is still relying on old software

    Not sure about that Morty. He did get credit for Paqueta (although that has gone a bit pear shaped). He was credited with JWP signing who had a decent first half of the season. But overall it was his reluctance to sign players that annoyed most of us especially when he sold Pablo and Benny and what we got in replacement was Kalvin Phillips who has to be one of the most disastrous signings any club has made. And he was warned not to sign him by many who were right. I thought he might have been a decent signing but how wrong was I ……

    You are easily amused ! The style of play ,team selection,playing players out of their best position ,terrible substitutions ,no Academy players ,and zero tactical acumen are all down to Moyes . How many times have forward players with great goal scoring records flopped at the Hammers and then gone on to regain their form and score freely ??? Moyes was given a squad of talented players and was totally incapable of blending them into a team . Quite frankly Moyes is a disgrace .

    Cabbie, you are not wrong. I’ve been watching The Irons for over 50 years and Moyes is worst manager we’ve had since Lou Macari. I must correct you though: he ‘was’ a disgrace… not ‘us’ anymore. That particular nightmare is over for us. Somebody else’s problem. Let’s see how many of Moyes apologists are lining up to offer him a job.
