West Ham can land some ambitious signings in this summer’s transfer window, claims Daily Star journalist Paul Brown.
While the club in east London had a quiet January, Brown believes David Gold, David Sullivan and Daniel Kretinsky could take some serious steps towards the 2022/23 season.
What’s the latest transfer news involving West Ham?
Reports in Spain are currently linking Real Madrid star Isco with a move to West Ham, where the 29-year-old sees very little playing time under Carlo Ancelotti this season.
According to El ESPANOL, David Moyes is keen to add Isco to his squad, but faces competition from Sevilla and Fiorentina for his signature.
The Spanish national team player has only started three league games for Madrid in the current campaign and will be a free agent this summer, so an exit looks inevitable.
In the winter window, West Ham tried to sign Benfica’s Darwin Nunez so the striker can become yet another big name that Hammers is aiming for when the transfer market is open again.

What has Brown said about West Ham’s summer plans?
Brown believes it could be the summer when the West Ham board delivers and makes some ambitious signatures.
In a speech to GIVEMESPORT, the Daily Star reporter said: “I would suppose this summer might be the one where they manage to pull something like that out [ambitious signings]. And of course, if they get into the Champions League, it will make a huge difference to be able to attract some of those names. ”
How important is this summer for West Ham?
Very. They may need to add significant additions to their squad to convince their star players to stay at London Stadium.
According to a 90min report, Jarrod Bowen is attracting interest from Newcastle United, who now have the resources to provide individuals with great deals.
Teammate Declan Rice is also still linked with other clubs. The Telegraph recently claimed that Manchester United want to buy West Ham’s vice-captain and Tottenham talisman Harry Kane as they appear to support Erik ten Hag, with the Dutchman ready to become their next manager.
If the Hammers are to hold on to people like Bowen and Rice, then they will have to show them that the club can move on. And to do that, new signatures are likely to be needed that will improve the team.
