West Ham United are gearing up nicely for the upcoming season under new manager Manuel Pellegrini, who guided Manchester City to the Premier League title in the 2013/14 season. The Hammers fans are filled with optimism as there is a sense of anticipation about what the Chilean will bring to West Ham. Pellegrini is known for playing an attacking brand of football with a passing approach.
Pellegrini must be looking to bring in a few fresh faces to the London Stadium in the summer. And here’s why West Ham should sign Jack Wilshere and Yaya Toure.
They will cost nothing
In these times when quality players cost a fortune, Wilshere and Toure won’t cost a single penny. Toure has been released by Manchester City, while Wilshere decided not to renew his contract with Arsenal. Both players are free agents now and if West Ham manage to sign the duo on free transfers, they would be recognised as the best bargain buys of recent times.
The Hammers can lure the two midfielders by projecting Pellegrini as the catalyst for change at the club.
The usual suspects of Premier League
Wilshere and Toure have been playing in the Premier League for a long time now. The two midfielders have been showcasing their qualities in the English top-flight for several years, which is why there should be no fears of them failing to adapt in the division. In fact, there would be excitement and positivity among the West Ham fans, who would happily embrace two proven players at their club.
In an attacking system under Pellegrini, Wilshere and Toure should be able to thrive the way they did at Arsenal and Manchester City respectively.
Both Wilshere and Toure have showcased their ability in the Premier League for years now, and the pair are capable of thoroughly dominating and controlling a game from midfield. Wilshere is a technical playmaker with excellent dribbling ability, while Toure is an absolute powerhouse in the midfield.
West Ham have good players in their midfield, but a midfield duo of Wilshere and Toure could take their game to a whole new level.
