This was after a West Ham fan put forward the scenario of us staying in the Premier League and asked their followers what positions we feel need strengthening for next season, suggesting left-back for a start.
That position is a good shout as Aaron Cresswell has come under fire for his sub-par performances this term and it looks like David Moyes might have given up on Arthur Masuaku after him being in and out of favour.
If Declan Rice gets sold, we’ll undoubtedly need a new defensive midfielder and if Albian Ajeti is also moved on, a new striker should be in the offing and you could argue that it should be anyway with how we’ve performed in front of goal in 2019/2020 so far.
You can see the supporter discussion on the matter, here…

LB for sure to replace Arthur, CB as Reid will leave.Maybe a couple in midfield as Wilshire, Sanchez will go and there are doubts with Lanzini and even if Anderson is consistent enough. Striker to play alongside Haller especially as Ajeti is likely to move on
