West Ham United’s transfer business is far from over this summer after a busy start, according to a former Everton chief.

Despite already making three signings this summer, Everton’s former Chief Executive Keith Wyness has claimed that the Hammers will make three more signings in this transfer window.

Speaking on the ‘Football Insider’s’ Inside Track Podcast, the 66-year-old insisted that new manager Julen Lopetegui had been given ‘promises’ of a big transfer window to rebuild a squad in the way he wants.

The Hammers have welcomed three new players to the London Stadium so far this summer. The first through the door was Brazillian wonder kid Luid Guilherme for around £30m, he was followed by experienced goalkeeper Wes Foderingham on a free. Julen Lopetegui’s third and most marquee signing so far was recently announced, Max Kilman arrived at the club for £40m from Wolves.

Earlier this week, in a press conference with the boss, technical director Tim Steidten pointed out the Hammers wouldn’t have to sell to buy. The club are now looking to bring in a full-back, with Kyle Walker-Peters looking the most likely option. However, there have also been links to Spurs’ Sergio Reguilon and Ferdi Kadioglu of Fenerbache.

Lopetegui is also desperate to bring in a striker before the start of the season, to provide competition for Michail Antonio and Danny Ings. There is yet to be a concrete name the club look set to move for. However, John Duran, Jonathan David and Samu Omorodion could all be options for the position.

The sixth and final signing of the season will likely be a central midfielder, Flynn Downes will likely be departing for Southampton. He could be part of a deal to bring Kyle Walker-Peter’s back to London, after playing for Spurs previously. There haven’t been many central midfielders linked to the club as of yet but they will soon arrive once the striker is sorted.

Finally, the Hammers could move for another central defender, however that would depend on the sale of either Nayef Aguerd or Kurt Zouma. It has been reported that either could be used as part of a deal to bring Jean-Clair Todibo to the club which  would bring the transfer fee down for the £35m rated defender significantly.

It’s been a very bright start to the transfer window from both Lopetegui and Steidten, and all these links prove there isn’t much chance of it slowing down anytime soon. This window has shown an organisation that West Ham fans haven’t been used to in years and it could lead to a very successful season under a new manager.
