Bilic wants to make sure West Ham have all positions covered after an underwhelming 2016/17 season. Lanzini is a key player at the Olympic Stadium so losing him could be a huge blow to the Hammers.
Jota is a product of the Celta Vigo youth system and he helped Eibar earn promotion to La Liga while on loan in the 2013–14 season. Both Newcastle and West Ham fans seem quite keen on the prospect of signing Jota.
Carvalho, Sakho and Jota. If we were to sign these three, then it would quite possibly be the best window of my lifetime so far.— West Ham Fan Zone (@WHUFCFZ) August 10, 2017
If we sign Carvalho, Jota and Smalling, we would have had the best window in the league, Hands down.— ⚒Ben⚒ (@DieHardHammers) August 9, 2017
Jota has scored 23 league goals in 69 appearances for Brentford and has also previously been on loan to Real Madrid. Although the 26-year-old only made three league appearances while on loan at Madrid.
