Manuel Pellegrini’s summer spending spree at West Ham looks set to continue, with the Hammers reportedly closing in on moves for Jack Wilshere and Borussia Dortmund’s Andriy Yarmolenko.

Wilshere is apparently set to move to the London Stadium on a free transfer after leaving Arsenal at the end of his contract, meanwhile the Hammers have reportedly agreed a fee in the region of £17.5m for Ukraine international Yarmolenko.

A number of other clubs were keen on Wilshere according to reports, with Fenerbahce, Southampton, Wolves and AC Milan, among others, all credited with an interest in the midfielder.

But it appears that West Ham have got their man, with the Hammers reportedly expected to complete the signing of the England international in the coming days.

The Irons won’t have to pay a fee for the midfielder, who left Arsenal at the end of his contract last month after new boss Unai Emery told him that his playing time would be significantly reduced.

Wilshere came through the ranks with the Gunners and made 197 appearances in all competitions during ten years as a professional with the club.

He turned out 38 times for Arsenal last season, having returned to the club during the summer of 2017 after a loan spell at Bournemouth, and his form saw him called up to the England squad in March for the friendlies against Holland and Italy.

But the midfielder had to withdraw from the squad due to injury and his World Cup hopes effectively went up in smoke, after he was left out of Gareth Southgate’s 23 man squad for the tournament.

Wilshere may not be the only arrival at the London Stadium this week, with Pellegrini apparently closing in on a double deal after a bid for Ukraine international Yarmolenko was accepted by Dortmund.

The 28-year-old winger has only been with the Bundesliga outfit for one season having signed from Dynamo Kiev last summer, but looks set to leave having failed to hold down a regular spot in the starting line-up, scoring six times in 26 appearances.

Hammers boss Pellegrini will hope that Yarmolenko will add further potency to West Ham’s attack, with the winger having a superb goal-scoring record during his time with Dynamo Kiev, notching 137 times in 341 matches.

If both deals go through, the duo would take Pellegrini’s number of summer signings to five, with the Hammers already securing deals for Ryan Fredericks, Lukasz Fabianski and Issa Diop.
