With Sam Allardyce’s future in the balance and a stadium move just over a year away, West Ham’s decision making this summer could shape the direction in which it goes.
A rash decision where the manager is concerned could backfire, but investment in the playing squad is always going to be at the forefront of the owner’s minds.
But who can they sign and, if Allardyce does leave, then who will the new manager want? It’s certainly one of the club’s most important and crucial summers for many, many years.
Regardless of the managerial uncertainty, we’ve been linked with loads of players over the last few months. Some rumours have been completely off the mark, while others have been serious links to what the owners have in mind once this season ends.
One thing this season has taught us is that strength in depth needs to improve, especially if we’re going to have the Europa League to contend with next term.
Below is a list of the 23 players we’ve been linked with so far. Vote thumbs up or thumbs down on each one so we can see, in real time, exactly who the West Ham fans want to see in claret and blue next season.
