Three former West Ham players Manuel Pellegrini should look to re-sign this summer

New West Ham United manager Manuel Pellegrini has already been busy in the transfer market this summer having boosted his defensive options by signing Ryan Fredericks, Issa Diop and Lukasz Fabianski, but the Chilean won’t be finished there.

The former Manchester City boss will be determined to bring in further additions in order to ensure that the east London club are guaranteed a top-half finish minimum in the upcoming season, having flirted with relegation last term with the joint-worst defence in the Premier League – they conceded 68 goals in their 38 top flight fixtures.

The 64-year-old, who has been urged to sign a 25-year-old World Cup attacking ace, will have his targets in mind – with the majority of those likely to be defenders and midfielders with decent strength in depth in attacking areas – but perhaps he should be considering some familiar faces, too.
