West Ham United currently have a battle to stay in the Premier League on their hands, as they sit above the relegation zone on goal difference.
The Hammers will be desperate to stay up and avoid the embarrassment of getting relegated after the move to London Stadium.
If they do manage this, it is likely they will look to bring in new talent that ensures this scenario does not happen again.
With this in mind, FFC has predicted the starting XI that David Moyes could use next term, including four new signings.
Despite his injury worries, it seems very unlikely that Lukasz Fabianski will be replaced in goal, especially after Darren Randolph was signed in January to add extra support.
There is a dilemma about whether Ryan Fredericks or Jeremy Ngakia should be West Ham’s starting right-back after the teenager’s impressive performances, and there is a chance that the latter could get the nod.
Issa Diop and Angelo Ogbonna certainly have the potential to make a solid centre-back partnership, so keep their places in the team.
It can be argued that left-back is still an issue for West Ham, with neither Aaron Cresswell or Arthur Masuaku looking particularly convincing in their play. This could see the Hammers look to the transfer market, and Real Betis’ Alex Moreno could be the man they turn to.
Sport Witness have shown that Grada 3 reported about West Ham’s interest, while Estadio recently hinted at it. They could do a lot worse than the 26-year-old, who averages 1.4 tackles, 0.7 interceptions, 1.6 clearances, 0.9 key passes and 1.6 dribbles per La Liga game and has recorded four assists this term.
Into the midfield, and Tomas Soucek’s loan has an option to buy, as reported by West Ham‘s official website, which could see him stay alongside Declan Rice, as ExWHUemployee revealed on the latest West Ham Way podcast that the Hammers are yet to receive a bid for him.
West Ham have seemingly been looking into signing a new attacking midfielder, with football.london suggesting there is interest in Norwich City’s Emiliano Buendia and West Bromwich Albion loanee Matheus Pereira. Considering the two teams will likely be switching places in the Premier League and Championship, Buendia could be the more realistic option.
Having the Argentinean’s creative presence should help get more out of Sebastien Haller, who keeps his place in the side, while the Frenchman could benefit from the support coming off the wings.
Jarrod Bowen keeps his place on the right, while Hirving Lozano comes in, as Calciomercato reported that West Ham are among the sides showing interest in the Napoli man.
These additions could see the likes of Mark Noble, Robert Snodgrass and Pablo Fornals all struggling to get a place in the team.
