After talk of players moving to the London Stadium all summer, West Ham look like they will finish the week with three major signings in the bag.
With Joe Hart joining the club on a season-long loan deal on Tuesday, Javier Hernandez and Marko Arnautovic look to set to join the England international in east London.
The signings, which will complete a remarkable week of business from Slaven Bilic, have drawn praise from an unlikely source.
Jose Mourinho, whose Manchester United side face the Hammers on the opening weekend of the season, has hailed Bilic’s additions in the transfer window alongside those of the Premier League’s biggest teams.
Mourinho, speaking on United’s pre-season tour of America, said: “I’m thinking about West Ham to play the first match of the Premier League and West Ham gets Joe Hart, gets Chicharito and Arnautovic, West Ham wow, it looks like they play to win the Premier League too.”
The former Chelsea manager is a big fan of Hernandez and he previously said during an interview in March that the Red Devils should never have sold the Mexican international.
“Manchester United sold players that I would never sell and bought players that I would never buy,” said Mourinho.
“I would never have sold Di Maria, Chicharito, Danny Welbeck — never, no chance.”
