West Ham United have made the worst start possible, as they have now shipped in 10 goals in the first three league games this season, losing all their games. They are at the rock bottom in the points table at the moment and Slaven Bilic’s position at the club is already under threat. The Hammers have added a couple of exciting prospects to their squad but the start to the season will make them re-work their transfer strategy.
With the deadline day fast approaching, the Croatian manager will now look to make atleast one more addition to his squad, to help revive his side’s start. Here are two such players who West Ham could sign on/before the deadline day:
The Portuguese midfielder is one of the best players in his position in Europe. He has been in impeccable form in the domestic league in his country and has extensively been linked with a move to the Premier for more than a couple of years now. The Hammers have already seen a bid in excess of £30m get rejected for him recently.
Bilic seems to have decided that he will not pursue his services but if he is unable to sign another midfielder before the final day of the transfer market, he is sure to come back for Carvalho, this time with a better offer. The magic of deadline day can also help them in their negotiations and adding the 25-year old can solve the problems at the club to a certain extent.
One player who has extensively been linked with a move to the London outfit is Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho. The French international has lost the faith of the manager at Anfield, Jurgen Klopp, and has been banished from the first team. The Reds are ready to let him leave for a bid of £30m West Ham can take advantage of this.
He is a strong centre-back, who has had some tremendous games for Liverpool. He deserves to play regularly and West Ham is not a bad destination for him. He can slot into the first team straight away and will improve West Ham’s backline and at just 27, he is also a long-term option for the club. Surely, he is a player the Hammers should sign, if they find no other options in the transfer market before the deadline day.
