West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic is looking to continue bolster his squad, with a "top-class striker" after the signing of Valencia winger, Sofiane Feghouli. 

Adding to the recruits 

Feghouli has become the Croatian's latest addition, having already secured the services of Norwegian international, Havard Nordtveit, with both coming in on free transfers. 

However, the one thing that Bilic has been looking for is a striker, the Hammers have been linked with numerous names, such as: Jamie Vardy, Theo Walcott, Carlos Bacca and Alexandre Lacazette and Bilic said that he is keen to add to his forward options. 

Bilic wrote in the MailOnline, saying "hats off" to the "West Ham board" for the capture of the two and is "proud" and "glad" to have secured their services as other "big clubs" were "trying for them." 

He continued saying that "everyone knows" that West Ham are looking for a "top-class striker" and if they can get a "20-goals-a-season man" then Bilic says that there is "no reason" why they "can't improve" on last season's efforts and "challenge" the "Premier League's top teams."

Delighted to be on board 

Feghouli has become the latest recruit to the Bilic revolution, with the Algerian signing a three-year contract, and will officially become a Hammer on July 1. 

The 26-year-old was a regular in the Valencia side, making 243 appearances and scoring 42 goals since his arrival in 2010, and he shared his delight at his move to the English capital. 

Feghouli told whufc.com that he was "very happy" to have signed for the "Hammers" and "Slaven Bilic" and that the "history of the club" was "important" in his decision to make the move. 

He continued saying that "playing in the Premier League" and "very important" for players and their "careers" and "happy" to "play for the Hammers." 

West Ham United will host Juventus at the Olympic Stadium in the Betway Cup, on Sunday, August 7 with kick-off at 1pm BST.
