West Ham to make sixth signing ‘in next three days’

West Ham will make another signing “in the next three days”, according to Jack Sullivan.

The Hammers have been the busiest of any Premier League side in terms of incomings so far this summer, signing five players on permanent deals.

Defender James Tomkins has also been sold to Crystal Palace for £10m, as the club look to build on a seventh-placed finish last season.

Posting on Twitter on Tuesday afternoon, Sullivan, the youngest of co-owner David Sullivan’s two sons, claimed that the Hammers will make their next signing by the weekend.

That has led to a flurry of speculation regarding the identity of Slaven Bilic’s next recruit, with Besiktas midfielder Gokhan Tore the leading contender. The winger has been heavily linked with a move to West Ham and the Turkish club have reportedly accepted the Hammers’ £8.5million bid for Turkey international.

Last month Bilic confirmed that he wanted to sign Tore and Atiba Hutchinson.

“Yes I want Gokhan Tore and Atiba Hutchinson, they are both targets we also have others but they are major targets. Will it happen? nobody can say yet but we want him,” Bilic told Turkisd broadcaster Lig Tv.

“I want one transfer for both.”

Meanwhile, Manchester United youngster Ashley Fletcher is also thought to be close to a move to the Olympic Stadium.
