Whether manager Sam Allardyce remains in charge or not, owner Farhad Moshiri will be keen for the club to get their business correct – including getting some better value for money on their new additions – over the course of the next couple of months, and the fact that the World Cup starts in just over a month and the transfer window closes on August 9, means they will be under pressure to get deals done early.
