The Hammers have been chasing Jesse Lingard all summer, although it’s looking increasingly likely that he’ll remain at Manchester United despite his expected lack of opportunities.
David Moyes has made just one addition in PSG goalkeeper Alphonse Areola on loan, although the east Londoners are on the verge of completing a £25m deal for Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma.
West Ham desperately need another striker, with the red-hot Michail Antonio their only senior frontman at the club, but Moyes has been unable to add to his front-line.
Meanwhile, with Areola joining on loan and Zouma’s move not completed, the Hammers haven’t yet spent the £20.05m they banked for previous record-signing Sebastien Haller in January.
And whilst GSB would appear reluctant to dip into their pockets following clubs’ recent financial problems due to the pandemic, Rosser told FFC that there are funds available for Moyes:
“The money that they’ve got to spend isn’t huge, but there is money there. They’re not going to blow anyone out of the water, but they’ve got just under the same they’ve spent on Zouma to spend.”
