Now that West Ham United have confirmed their place in the 2017/18 Premier League campaign, it is time for future preparations to get underway.

The London Evening Standard are reporting that West Ham are aiming to add speedy players to their squad this summer.

West Ham lack genuine pace in the attacking regions, other than the injured Michail Antonio, who was yesterday named Hammer of the Year.

Slaven Bilic will be casting his eye over pacey strikers this summer and two Premier League attackers have been listed as targets.

West Ham’s interest in Southampton striker Shane Long could be reignited.

Shane Long has fallen down the pecking order at Southampton with Charlie Austin and Manolo Gabbiadini in front of him.

The Republic of Ireland international might be tempted to leave the Saints in the summer for more regular game time with West Ham.

The Hammers will also pursue a loan move for Michy Batshuayi.

The Belgium international was a key target for West Ham last summer but he joined Chelsea instead.

He has been limited to just seventeen substitute appearances and no starts in the Premier League and could join West Ham on loan this summer if Chelsea want him to gain more playing time.
