Former Premier League midfielder Carlton Palmer has been speaking to Transfer Tavern about West Ham United’s transfer budget.
He said: “I know that there’s not going to be, and David knows that there’s not going to be [a lot to spend].
“I would think that David might have £30m, £35m to spend in the summer, so he’s not going to have a lot of money. He knows that.”
Do you think West Ham will have this little to spend?
No, we have to have more
Yes, that sounds about right
TIF Thoughts on Palmer’s claims…
If what Palmer says is true, you would think the Hammers would spend most of their budget on Jesse Lingard.
Now, this could leave West Ham stretched next season as they already have a small squad, so we hope for their sake that the Hammers get a budget much closer to Ex’s suggestion.
This could allow the Hammers to significantly strengthen in a number of areas, so it remains to be seen what budget David Moyes will be given, but if Palmer is right, then West Ham could be in for a tough summer.
