West Ham United still want to complete four new transfers after finishing the deal to sign Paris Saint-Germain defender Thilo Kehrer, according to 90min.

The online outlet has reported that another central defender, a left-back, a central midfielder as well as an attacking midfield option are on the cards at the London Stadium.

Kehrer is already in London to finalise his medicals and personal terms over the past 24 hours, with the announcement now not far away for the Irons.

David Moyes has worked closely with Rob Newman this summer and GSBK has certainly backed them financially looking at all of the new arrivals.

They are far from done there too, but it is the injury crisis that has made it even more critical.

The biggest concern is at the heart of the defence, and it is mainly why the Irons want another one on top of Kehrer once that is finalised.

Nayef Aguerd, Angelo Ogbonna and Craig Dawson are all injured, while Kurt Zouma historically also has his problems that could come again.


More new faces are coming for West Ham United.

Fabrizio Romano has already shared that personal terms are agreed for Kehrer, so it is the final medical checks and the media obligations to come before it is announced.

Kehrer will kick off another blitz it seems, and we already cannot wait.

The bench in both of our Premier League games so far hasn’t exactly been mind-blowing, and four new arrivals on top of the PSG man will beef up this squad hugely.

More midfield options appear to be on the agenda and that is bang on with our current choices not exactly inspiring and have remained the same for quite some time.

With only two weeks remaining, the Hammers are going to have work in overdrive to get four new arrivals over the line, and based on the evidence so far in this window, it will be a very hard ask.

Fingers crossed.
