Following a season of continuous unrest at Upton Park, manager Sam Allardyce has been charged with the task of making his West Ham side more exciting via the summer transfer market, with a reported budget of £20million.

Indeed, averaging just 1.3 goals per match at home, which works out at a rather shocking £25 per goal for the Boleyn season-ticket holders, the Hammers fans have shown no refrain in their efforts to voice discontent over Allardyce’s increasingly one-dimensional attritional philosophy.

Admittedly, £20m is little more than loose change in the modern Premier League era and hardly the size of budget one would expect to provide major philosophical change.

But if anyone can pull it off, it’s Big Sam, one of the Premier League’s most renowned transfer market operators. And just in case he’s short on a few ideas, here’s a list of FIVE exciting signings the Hammers boss could make for a combined £20million this summer.
