Premier League club West Ham United are one of the busiest clubs in this summer’s transfer window and the Hammers are just getting started after they switched their attention to Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson.

The Hammers have already signed three players and counting this summer.

Goalkeepers Roberto and David Martin have joined West Ham United from Spanish La Liga club Espanyol and English Championship side Millwall respectively.

The Hammers made their third signing of the summer when they completed the signing of Pablo Fornals from another La Liga side Villarreal in a deal reported to be around £25m.

The latest player seriously on the radar of the Hammers is Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson.

According to the publication from The Sun, the Hammers are plotting a £35m bid for Callum Wilson.

West Ham United want to sign a new striker but they were frustrated in their quest to sign their first target Maxi Gomez.

The young Uruguayan international turned down a move to West Ham despite the fact that his Spanish club had agreed on a £29m deal for him.

West Ham have identified Callum Wilson as the direct replacement for Celta Vigo striker Maxi Gomez but it remains to be seen if Bournemouth will be willing to do a deal for the long-term Chelsea target.
