West Ham’s ten most expensive signings of all time

West Ham are a club with lofty ambitions.

This season saw them move into the London Stadium, increasing the capacity by practically double what Upton Park offered. They used this move and an impressive campaign last time out, in which they finished 7th, to justify splashing the cash this summer.

They signed a multitude of players, but the Hammers haven’t always enjoyed such fortunes in the transfer market – having spent several years milling about in mid-table, countless underwhelming signings have passed through the east London doors.

And those juxtaposing eras of West Ham’s history have us at Football FanCast very intrigued, particularly in regards to the club’s ten most expensive signings of all time.

Whilst some went on to etch their name in Hammers folk law, others quickly proved not fit for purpose. With that in mind, here’s a rundown of West Ham’s ten most expensive signings of all time – aided by our good mates at Transfermarkt.co.uk.
