Now we’re in to June, transfer rumours are going to come in thick and fast ahead of the 2017/18 Premier League season.
As a result, we’ve been speaking to a source close to West Ham World in recent days to get the low down on a number of potential West Ham related transfers that may or may not happen in the coming months…
Cresswell to Liverpool?
Aaron Cresswell could be sold to Liverpool if they meet West Ham’s £15m.
Cresswell has expressed his desire to play for the club he supports and wants to prove the club wrong after the Reds released him at youth level.
Klopp was interested in Fulham’s teenage sensation Ryan Sessegnon but it appears that no deal will be met and Klopp has moved on to recognised left-backs rather than youth players.
If Cresswell does sign for Liverpool, he would have the chance to play in the Champions League next season. What a turnaround for a player who was scoring free-kicks for Tranmere Rovers against Dagenham and Redbridge six years ago.
His departure would mean that Arthur Masuaku could become a regular starter.
POSSIBLE DEAL RATING: 7/10
Robertson to replace him?
Talking of left-backs, the potential void left by Cresswell’s departure could be quickly resolved with the addition of Hull City’s Andrew Robertson.
West Ham had a bid rejected for the Scot back in January. Now that Hull City have been relegated they would be interested in accepting a similar bid from West Ham.
The fee is believed to be around £8m with appearance related add-ons and could be tied up within the next couple of weeks.
Hull City have confirmed publicly that Robertson and Harry Maguire are to be sold for the start of the summer transfer window, which opens on July 1st.
POSSIBLE DEAL RATING: 6/10
Tony Henry is using his connections in Spain to scout current Porto striker Vincent Aboubakar. Spain? But Porto is in Portugal? Correct!
The reason behind the Spanish based scout is because Cameroon are playing an international friendly against Columbia and the fixture is to be played in Getafe on June 13.
This fixture is four days before the AFCON champions fly to Russia to compete in the 2017 Confederations Cup.
Aboubakar has been picked for the national team and is likely to start all upcoming games. The striker has spent the last season at Beskitas on loan, helping the Turkish club win their second consecutive league title and scoring 18 goals in 37 appearances.
A deal would look likely if a scout report comes back positive as the player only has one year remaining on his current Porto deal and could leave for around £9m-10m.
POSSIBLE DEAL RATING: 8/10
Tadic wants Fonte reunion?
Dusan Tadic is apparently keen to join ex-Saints teammate Jose Fonte at London Stadium.
It appears that they were both fell out with boss Claude Puel back in December and Tadic is now seeking a move away from St. Mary’s.
The player has three years remaining on his current contract bit the club are looking to offload his wages to allow new signings to come in.
His reported value is between £11m-13m, but the Hammers will only sign him if a ‘value for mone’ deal is negotiable.
It is believed West Ham’s maximum limit would be £9m due to his wage situation and his age. At 28-years-old, he has gained a lot of Premier League experience and is currently considered one of Southampton’s most creative players from set pieces.
Our source believes that Tadic will only join the club if Andre Ayew leaves for Marseille, but Bilic and Sullivan in particular are desperate to keep hold of the Ghana international as it would heavily affect their proposed plans for the upcoming season.
POSSIBLE DEAL RATING: 5/10
