As concerns start to mount in East London, a reliable West Ham source has dropped an encouraging update…
The Irons are yet to complete any business since the transfer window opened last week, which is pretty understandable given the European Championships are on right now.
However, mooted striker target Patson Daka appears to be on the verge of joining Premier League rivals Leicester City, whilst it seems like manager David Moyes and the club have also been dealt a devastating setback in their pursuit to sign Jesse Lingard permanently.
But the anonymous ExWHUemployee has now delivered his thoughts on the current situation.
In response to one worried supporter on Twitter, he wrote:
“Unfortunately a lot of the players we are keen on are currently awaiting other transfers to happen (domino effect) before they are allowed to go with the Euros being on it means players are occupied etc. I know only youngsters but we have brought 2 in. Top ones to follow.”
This should come as very promising news to many in East London right now. After all, it’s still early days and the new season is still months away.
The Hammers have been handed some positive news in recent weeks. The 58-year-old signed a new long-term agreement to remain in charge of the side.
He had steered West Ham from relegation candidates to the Europa League, recording their best-ever Premier League points tally and their highest finish since 1999.
A little patience is now required as the club looks to work on getting transfers over the line. Moyes needs plenty of additions, none more so than upfront, where he only has an injury-prone Michail Antonio to call upon right now.
But even though Daka will be going elsewhere, it seems like the Irons’ hierarchy is working on other deals, with Ex claiming that the top targets are to follow in due course.
Moyes also has to put together his own recruitment team as he has been given the green light to bolster his scouting network by David Gold, David Sullivan and Karen Brady, according to Football Insider, so that could be another reason behind their delay in the transfer market.
All in all, it’s far from the time to start panicking just yet. As the reliable source says, things are likely to fall into place after Euro 2020, even if some targets are going elsewhere.
