Slaven Bilic says that it is difficult to bring players into West Ham.
West Ham have signed Pablo Zabaleta but have not managed to bring in a striker. The club have reportedly pulled out of the race to sign Olivier Giroud after learning that they are not his first choice.
That leaves West Ham scratching around for potential signings, but Bilic says that he will not make panic buys.
“Make no mistake, we are working hard every day, but it is not easy,” Bilic told the clubs official website.
“Some clubs, like Everton, are signing a lot of players, some are signing a couple of players, and some haven’t signed any.
“But that doesn’t mean they are not trying. I’m sure everybody is working, and everybody is trying to sign players.”
“What we want is to bring in the quality that is going to improve our first 11. We have Pablo [Zabaleta] and I am really expecting to add a couple more soon.
“Everybody is talking about a striker, but it is very hard to find them.We are working on it, but we are not going to get someone that we are not sure about.”
