ExWHUemployee has claimed that while West Ham United have held ‘multiple conversations’ over potential transfer deals, many are not ‘particularly close’.

We are now well past the midway point in the January transfer window. However, the Hammers have not made any new signings so far.

While speaking about the club’s current transfer plans on The West Ham Way podcast, Ex stated that there have been talks involving new head of recruitment Rob Newman and potential targets – but that does not mean any moves are necessarily close to completion.

Should West Ham sign Alex Kral on a permanent basis?





He explained: Now, there’s been multiple conversations between Newman and agents and clubs, but so far, none of them are particularly close.

“So, we have to hope that something will happen in the next few weeks.”

TIF Thoughts on West Ham United…

With David Moyes’ men pushing for a spot in the top four, it would make sense for the club to go out and add some reinforcements this winter.

The Hammers have shown a willingness to spend in recent times, too. Indeed, over the summer, big cash was spent on bringing the likes of Kurt Zouma and Nikola Vlasic in.

As things stand, though, there doesn’t seem to be any recurring reports stating one main name is close to joining club – which goes some way to proving Ex’s statement.

Even so, there are plenty of rumours lurking about. One of the players from the Championship the club may sign is Fulham’s Fabio Carvalho.

Perhaps these ‘conversations’ that are taking place will progress in the coming days and West Ham will finally land a new signing.
