West Ham boss wants to sign ‘game-changers’

Slaven Bilic says West Ham want to sign “game-changers” during this summer’s transfer window.

The Hammers have been linked with a host of players and are expected to sign at least a couple of forwards.

Manager Bilic believes he is well stocked when it comes to squad players and talented youngsters, and can therefore focus on bringing in quality additions.

“We need quality players. Of course you always need quality players but sometimes you are buying players for the future, sometimes you are buying players for the squad to be back-ups and all that, but we are good in that department,” he told the club’s website.

“If some of the players go, we can refresh the team with new players, but mainly we need the players who are going to improve the quality and be the game-changers.

“There are no guarantees in football, but we need starting XI players in certain positions.”

He added: “We have legs and physicality but we would like to add a little bit more quality to [Manuel] Lanzini, like what we had last year with Manu and [Dimitri] Payet, which was a great combination, not just for the two of them but for the whole team.”
