West Ham United coach David Moyes has stated that the Hammers will look to strengthen themselves during the January transfer window if the right players are available.
However, he has warned that West Ham will be financially responsible and will not seek to sign players for the simple fact of doing so.
The Hammers have done extremely well in the Premier League this season and Moyes will likely have the backing of the owners if he wants to sign players.
Moyes told Standard: “I am going to say the same thing I said this time last year. If we can and believe that something is available, the owner would try to make it, but obviously, like everyone else, we are in a difficult financial situation. We will not be fools.
“I want to keep pushing, I want to keep trying to improve, but I have to say that we will be linked to each man and his dog. The truth is that we will not sign all the men and their dogs, we will only sign players who I think are suitable for the club. Players who are hungry and fit what we need.
“I can only say that we will try to improve if it is there and we can do it, those who can have an impact like the one we have had recently.”
West Ham United are currently seventh in the Premier League table with 21 points from 13 games. The Hammers have managed to win four of their last six Premier League games with just one loss during that span.
Most teams have been plagued by injuries and inconsistencies this season and West Ham United will have a good chance of competing for European football this season.
They should look to strengthen the squad to challenge players like Everton and Leicester City in the coming months and it will be interesting to see if West Ham can land a quality player.
West Ham United have been well organized at the back this season and they also have a hard-working midfield. However, they could use some sharpness in attack and bringing in a quality forward to support Sebastien Haller could be a smart move from the London club.
