Evening Standard journalist Jack Rosser has revealed West Ham United boss David Moyes is desperate to welcome more reinforcements to the London Stadium ahead of a campaign of European football.

The Hammers are set to have a jam-packed season having qualified for the Europa League thanks to registering a club record Premier League points tally last season.

More minutes on the pitch means Moyes could do with adding strength in depth, but West Ham have only been able to confirm the arrival of Alphonse Areola so far.

Where do West Ham need to strengthen most?

Areola, who has joined on a season-long loan from Paris Saint-Germain with an option to buy, made 37 appearances as he shone for Fulham last term.

But Moyes is not willing to stop there and has been linked with a host of strikers – including Chelsea outcast Tammy Abraham – and central defenders since the the transfer window opened.

Rosser insists Moyes is working around the clock to strengthen his options.

He told Football FanCast: “They’re certainly looking and Moyes knows there is a need to invest this summer if they want to compete in Europe and maintain a top 10 place in the Premier League. That will be the aim, I think, next season.”
