West Ham will give new manager Manuel Pellegrini a larger budget they can use in the summer said by club co-owner David Gold.
The Chilean manager Pellegrini has targeted “four or five” players to help the club avoid a repeat of last season’s relegation struggle.
“We will probably spend more money in this window than we’ve spent in any window in the past,” Gold said.
The Hammers’ boss along with co-owner David Sullivan has been under scrutiny for a lack of spending in the transfer market.
On an average, the club has typically spent between £35-45m in each of the last three summer windows on permanent signings but Gold says he is unable to state what this summer’s expenditure will be.
“You can’t put a figure on it because you don’t know which players are going to leave and that will add to the kitty,” said Gold.
“He’s working on it right now, that’s why he’s been brought in.
vvvvvvvvvvvvvv and we’ll do everything we can to bring them in.”
