West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic has given his thoughts as to why Newcastle United have struggled in the transfer market this summer.
It has been well documented that Newcastle United manager Rafael Benitez has not managed to sign his top targets during the current transfer window and as a result, the Spaniard has been left very frustrated.
With less than a week to go before the transfer deadline passes, Newcastle are certainly running out of time in their hopes of strengthening the squad and the club will now surely have to move quickly in order to be able to land their desired targets.
West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic has recently been speaking about Newcastle’s woes in the window this summer and has stated that the Magpies’ aiming too high might have led to them missing out on many of their main targets over the past few months.
Speaking ahead of West Ham’s clash against Newcastle at St. Jame’s Park, Bilic said, “This window I don’t know exactly but I have followed who they have bought and if they are happy or not. But the have spent more money than us in terms of net money.
“But, OK they needed maybe more to improve to come from the Championship – it is a big club. They were all buzzing, the won the league and now ‘we are going to rule the world’ or whatever.
“Maybe they tried to get the players but maybe they were unable to get those targets they wanted, like we did last year. Maybe they were thinking too big and the players didn’t want to come because I don’t see them as a non-ambitious club.”
