West Ham are working on transfers to rebuild their team after narrowly missing out on the Europa League last season.

The Europa Conference League is another chance to offer memorable nights under the lights at the London Stadium, and the squad will have to be big to withstand the rigour and demands of Europe and the Premier League.

David Moyes is determined to bring special memories to east London and given Jose Mourinho was happy to win the new trophy, it would be special if the Hammers could life their first European cup since 1965.

There are talks of a new left back coming in to provide competition for Aaron Cresswell, and the Irons are pursuing former loan star Jesse Lingard, who still has to make up his mind where to play next season.

The Declan Rice situation looks to be settled now, with the midfielder and captain looking like he will be in east London despite reports of Chelsea trying to lure him away.

He will not sign a new contract - which will be a blow to the team - but the fact that he will still run out in claret and blue for the next couple of seasons means the club can have his best years.

Michail Antonio led the line last season, and he did massively well, but there is no hiding from the fact that he needed help, and the Hammers will look to bring in someone like Armando Broja.

There is a healthy competition between Vladimir Coufal and Ben Johnson for the right back position, but it looks like Coufal will be starting at based on experience.

Johnson will continue to get his game time and there is no doubt that he will be one of the leaders of the team in the future, but Coufal has a good season left in him.

So with many players to try and bring in, here is how West Ham will look like if David Moyes was to get all his transfer targets.
