Premier League side West Ham United are set for a summer overhaul, as per reports. The club parted ways with manager David Moyes as his six months contract lapsed. The former Everton and Manchester United boss was brought in to save the day and retain top flight status following the sack of Slaven Bilic. He achieved his mandate but the overall performance meant his contract could not be extended.

Both parties have since parted ways, with the Hammers keen on bringing in an experienced man to help the club to greater achievements next term. There have been several names linked to the job but it is increasingly likely that former Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini will get the nod. The Chilean is reportedly in discussion with the club. Other top coaches like Newcastle’s Rafa Benitez and Unai Emery, who just left Paris St Germain, are also top candidates for the role. There is Burnley’s Sean Dyche and former Watford manager Marco Silva.

For any coach that is appointed, there are mandatory tasks that need to be taken care of this summer. West Ham need world class defenders and this would be amongst the first tasks of the new coach. The defence allowed too many goals last term so an improvement is obvious to block the leak.
With the club finishing 13th on the log this term, the minimum expectation for next term would be top half finish, preferably a contention spot for Europa League. The manager would need to cut excesses and one of them is Andy Carroll.
An online survey showed fans were tired of the player. His injuries and inconsistencies in the team play have cost the team a lot. Cheikhou Kouyate is another player that is at risk of being cut loose as West Ham seek an optimum spread of contribution in the team. Definitely there would a lot of changes at the London Stadium after an underwhelming season.
