What looked like another dry transfer window for West Ham in the beginning, has now turned into one of their most productive summers in quite a long time.
The high profile signings of Javier Hernandez, Marko Arnautovic and Pablo Zabaleta means the Hammers now boast a team strong enough to challenge for the Europa League spot. What they now need is a solid defensive midfielder, and Slaven Bilic has recognized Sporting CP’s William Carvalho as his main target.
There have been a lot of rumours about the prospective transfer, and although progress has evidently slowed down in the past few days, a new photo featuring Carvalho and his friends might revive the hopes amongst the Hammers faithful.
In the picture, one of Carvalho’s friends can be seen posing whilst crossing his hands and it looks like he’s making the Hammers sign.
